Coffee/Drink Cozy Tutorial

Pin It

After a much needed 3 day weekend,
{SIG} is back to working!
Since I made the teacher's coffee/drink cozies,
I thought it would be a great little tutorial.

The best part, it only takes some scrap fabric!
Perfect for teacher gifts or stocking stuffers,
this tutorial shouldn't take longer than about 30 minutes to complete.

Ready to get moving?
~ Your choice of fabric, must be about 11" in length
~ Rubber Hair Band (or a pack just in case you want to make more)
~ Button (I chose to cover a button)
~ Fleece, fusible fleece or any other substitute
~ Starbucks sleeve
~ Iron & ironing board
~ Sewing machine & notions

Tear open the Starbucks sleeve and lay flat on paper.
Trace around sleeve, adding about 1/4".
Cut out your pattern.

Fold fabric over so that right sides are facing.
Trace pattern on to fabric.
Trace again on to your fleece.
Cut out.
You should have 2 pieces of fabric and 1 piece of fleece.

Keeping your fabric right sides facing,
please the piece of fleece directly on top.
Also, take your rubber hair band and place between
the 2 pieces of fabric.

Sew all the way around at about a 1/4" seam allowance.
MAKE SURE to leave about a 2" opening at the bottom
so that we can turn it right side out.
Then clip your corners as shown in the photo.

Now that you have sewn around,
turn right side out.
I like to use the blunt end of a skewer stick to get
my corners nice and pretty.
Press with a hot iron.

Sew all the way around, closing your opening.
Use a 1/8" seam allowance.

Sew your button on about 1.5" from the side.
And that is all folks!
You are finished and ready to use your cozy.

Told you it was easy!
Enjoy and feel free to share your finished cozy on our Facebook page!
