Fabric Coffee Sleeve - DIY Tutorial

Do you go to Pinterest much to look for inspiration for your next crafty project or recipe? I love looking for new ideas and dinner recipes on there. I have lots of things pinned but don't get around to making everything pinned to my boards. A couple blogs that I follow regularaly posted "the Pinterest Challenge" last week and I decided to do it! Check out Young House Love and Bower Power if you want more info. The challenge was to take this last week and make something that you pinned to one of your boards.

One of the ideas on my boards was a fabric coffee sleeve. It turned out to be a fun and simple sewing project. And, it's so handy to keep in the car when you go through the drive through or into a coffee shop to get your coffee so you don't waste a cardboard coffee sleeve! I read an article online that 14 billion cups of coffee are served each year, each wrapped in their own cardboard coffee sleeve. That's a lot of waste for a piece of cardboard that only gets used for a short time each morning. Why not make your own, unique fabric coffee sleeve to cut back on waste and add some fun color to your white coffee cup!

My inspiration from Pinterest.

Supplies:
Coffee Sleeve Template
5" x 11" Front Fabric
5" x 11" Backing Fabric
5" x 11" Medium Weight Interfacing
Button
4.5" Elastic (hair rubberband)
Matching Thread

Step 1:
Cut front and back fabric out using the Coffee Sleeve Template.

Step 2:
Iron interfacing onto the back side of your back fabric. (Not pictured)

Step 3:
Lay front and back fabric right sides together.

Step 4:
Fold elastic in half and slide the looped side between the two pieces of fabric. Center it along the short side.

Step 5:
Pin elastic in place. Pin both layers of fabric together.

Step 6:
Sew almost all the way around the two layers of fabric using 1/4" seam allowance. Leave about a 2" gap on one side of the fabric to all you to turn the fabric right side out.

Step 7:
Turn right side out and iron flat. Pin the gap closed.

Step 8:
Top stitch around the coffee sleeve with an 1/8" seam allowance.

Step 9:
Fold the edge with the elastic 1/2" over the non elasic edge.

Step 10:
Using a pencil, mark where the inside of the elastic is. Don't stretch the elastic as you mark where the button will go.

Step 11:
Sew the button onto the mark you just made.

Step 12:
Loop the elastic around the button and you're done!
