Outer Fabric (Mine is Anna Maria Horner linen and Kona solid)
Scrap of batting you could use flannel too
Small piece of thin elastic
Use a Starbucks cardboard sleeve as your pattern piece. Trace around adding 1/4 inch for
the seam allowance on the outer fabric, lining and batting. (If you do an embroidery detail, embroider the image first and then cut to size.)
Place outer fabric right side up, place lining fabric right side down and then the bathing. Pin in place and stitch 1/4 of an inch all the way around leaving a small opening to turn.
Turn sleeve/cozy right side out (a chopstick or point turner may be helpful)
Loop elastic, insert into opening and pin in place.
Stitch 1/8 of an inch all the way around, catching the elastic to secure
