After ordering, I would walk over to their giant pile of cardboard coffee sleeves, and then toss it away later. As one who likes to think of herself as a bit more resourceful than that, I decided I could take a craftier approach.
Fall has arrived and mornings are cool, I think it’s time I treat myself to a little warm mocha goodness. This time,
though, I’m not going to use one of those wasteful
cardboard cozies. I’m going to make my own. To
make yours, you’ll need fabric for the front and lining, small grommets, grommet setting tool, and ribbon to fit your grommets. I’m hand embroidering mine this time. For the embroidery, you’ll want
a design that’s less than 3 inches tall to fit your cozie.
Janice offered the brilliant suggestion of using Insul-Brite for the lining to boost your cozie's heat-blocking superpowers. You should be able to find it at your friendly local fabric store.
