Vacations are finally over for me and I have successfully made it to the 2nd year of college (wohoo) which means things will be rather slow as far as blogging is concerned. Though, I did try to finish up as many projects as possible in the last week of the vacation so don’t worry I’m not gonna abandon my little corner of the internet. 🙂
Today’s project is also easy peasy, lemon squeezy and would make a great gift idea for autumn as everyone will be sipping their hot teas/lattes/coffees.
If you’re wondering if this is the same cup from the Mug Rug Tutorial then you’re right. 😉
How to make Hearty Felt Custom Coffee Mugs’ Cozy
- White felt
- Pink felt
- piece of elastic
- A scrap for exterior fabric and lining fabric
- Light weight soft fusible interfacing
- Matching thread
Cut out the exterior and the lining pieces of the sleeve according to the template and fuse with the interfacing.
Place the two pieces right side facing each other and sew from all sides leaving a small opening to turn the fabric out. (I kept the side where I added my elastic open for ease.)
Clip the corners and turn.
Press, insert your elastic and finish off with topstitch.
Cut and spice up your hearts with blanket stitch around the edge with a complementary thread color.
Place the large heart in the centre and using running stitch and same thread used in step 4 attach it to the sleeve. Repeat with the smaller heart.
Add the button and you’re done! XD How cool and quick is that!
