handmade valentine: coffee sleeve


happy monday!

im coming at you with another cute valentines tutorial.
i made it for myself, but we don't need to tell anyone that.
what you need:
-old coffee sleeve
-felt (two colours of your choice - i'm canadian and i spell colour with a u)
-needle
-embroidery thread
-scissors
-pencil
-buttons (if you wish)
layout a coffee cup sleeve and trace around it
but make sure it's a bit bigger than the paper onecut out what ever shape you wish to, i picked a heart because i had red felt
stitch, stitch, stitch around the heart
then stitch around the tops and bottom of the cuff

then where the ends meet i stitched two buttons on,
and i forgot to take a picture of it :(then use your cute new reusable coffee sleeve or gift it to someone you love!


thanks for stopping by.

blessings,
amber
