Thanks a Latte {teacher appreciation gift}

I whipped these up for Mason's preschool teachers on Friday morning.  Yeah, I'm lame, and waited till the last possible day to put something together for them.  These coffee cup sleeves are a great stash buster project, and go together VERY quick.  I just traced a Starbucks sleeve, cut out 1/4 to 3/8 inch outside of trace lines.  Then sewed straight on my trace lines.  Turn and top-stitch, then add the snaps.  
Easy Peasy!! 
I lined with Insul-Bright, but I think next time I'll just use micro fleece or maybe even felt.

  1. Sew cute! Definitely a great project for all those scraps we just hate to throw away - thank you for sharing.

  2. Hi Amanda, I hopped over from Get Your Craft On's Linky Party -- I'm a big coffee fan; love to create crafts with coffee themes. Your coffee sleeves are so cute - and useful. If you need more of a coffee-fix, I hope you'll visit me at and catch my current post. I'm your newest follower.

  3. Thank you so much for the inspiration! I'm making tons of coffee cozies for a fundraiser and was trying to decide on packaging. Your "Thanks a Latte" insert is ADORABLE and will lend itself to us getting our info out there too since we could print on the other side!
