How to Make a Reusable Coffee Cup Sleeve:

  1. Use the disposable coffee sleeve to create a template for cutting fabric. Draw around the sleeve 1/2" from the edge and cut out.

  1. Pin the template to the wool fabric and cut it out using the 10" fabric shears.

  1. Use the rotary cutter, ruler, and cutting mat to cut strips of cotton print fabric, measuring 1-1/2" wide.

  1. To create the binding, use a hot iron to press the strips of fabric first in half lengthways, wrong sides facing. Then, press the outside edges in towards the center fold.

  1. Pin, then sew the opening binding to the right side of one long edge of the cut wool. Trim the seam with the fabric shears.

  1. Fold the binding to the wrong side of the wool fabric and hand stitch in place with needle and thread.
  2. Repeat Step 5 for the remaining edges of the wool fabric.
  3. Sew Velcro strips to the two short ends for the wool cup sleeve to complete.
