Coffee Cup Sleeves

I made these sleeves a month or so ago and because they were for an online challenge sponsored by Roc-lon, I didn't show them. And then I got busy with other things and forgot to show them after the challenge was over. The sleeves are made with their multi-purpose cloth.

I didn't have any foam coffee cups at the time I made them so for the photo above I rolled up some heavy interfacing to act as a cup. And the next photo shows them while they were still flat, before I stitched the ends together.

The coffee sleeves are painted with acrylic paint. This is some cool fabric and it has so many possibilities. The composition book covers I showed you a couple of posts or so ago are made with this material. If you decide you would like to get some to try, you may find it at your local JoAnn store or online at I Have a Notion.


  1. They are really neat. Do you have a pattern or could you share how to make these sleeves? I'd love to make some for Christmas gifts to my coffee drinking friends.

  2. Terri, these are absolutely charming. Thank you.

  3. I had fun making some of these out of fabric. They are quick and fun. I used a paper coffee sleeve as my pattern.

  4. These are so cheerful & would be such a wonderful way to add brightness to the day.

  5. These are great ... I'd want to buy a Latte just so I could use one!

  6. So cute! I've been making fabric ones, too, but these are even better. Nice job.


I enjoy getting your comments. Thanks so much for leaving one.
