My Embroidery Video

Outer Fabric (Mine is Anna Maria Horner linen and Kona solid)
Lining fabric
Scrap of batting you could use flannel too
Sewing Machine
Coordinating Thread
Small piece of thin elastic
1 Button

The Steps:

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.

Trim corners

Turn sleeve/cozy right side out (a chopstick or point turner may be helpful)

Press well

Loop elastic, insert into opening and pin in place.

Stitch 1/8 of an inch all the way around, catching the elastic to secure

Mark placement of button

Hand sew the button in place

    Ahhh I love this product so much!!!!>>>ur2.pl/1207 I recently bought a double wall glass tumbler and I use that to drink my tea every morning… after my one hour commute to work, the tea is not as hot anymore. Now with this ember tumbler, my tea stay at a precise temperature and that is so cool that I can set that with just a turn of the dial or through my phone! The temperature and battery are displayed on the tumbler wall… I freaked out about how cool that was. Although pricy, I think this tumbler is well worth the money. And this is also an excellent gift to get for friends and family as well! Christmas is coming up… I can knock so many people off my list with this item. They also have mugs which I will soon be getting!

    I like watching your videos when I make your videos you go very slow so beginners like me can understand what you are teaching us thank u Lynn sharpe

    Great idea for coffee cozies, thanks for sharing! Lately, struggled with the same problem and used another approach. I made coffee sleeve out of cardboard. Fits really good and keeps my hands pretty comfortable. By the way, it's protecting more effectively than original one. Uploaded on my channel

    I can't wait to make this!! I'm going to make at least one today. I'm making a "Wonder Woman" one for my husband's aunt for a birthday present. eek! I'm so excited!! thank you so much for this tutorial!!

    Thank you like how you make the coffee sleeves! Going to make them for my son and daughter in law! thank you for sharing!! Liz X

    I love all your tutorials you are so thorough for beginners and I love that you are a modern quilter (younger) and easier to understand; BIG fan :]

    Love how clear the video was and how you went quickly but were very thorough and the video recording showed all the details! Thank you! I get so frustrated watching tutorials where you can't even see what they are doing with their hands or they go off on a tangent and don't really explain something lol

    I would love to see some embroidery videos! you do such a great job explaining things & your videos are easy to follow!! Thank you!!

    Thanks for the video! Easy to follow instructions!  I just have a question about the elastic.  I've tried making 3 different sleeves and every time I need to go over the elastic part 2-3 times so it doesn't come out.  Any suggestions?

    Love Your Stuff! I put you on my list of "Top 10 Coffee Cozy Tutorials" http://fabriccoffeesleeve.com/top-10-coffee-cozy-how-tos/ You are Number 4!!! Thanks for all you do!
