These sleeves are great! Store them in your purse or bag and when you go out for coffee, you won't need a coffee sleeve anymore. Save a few trees! Ideally it's best to bring our own cup too, though often times we forget, which is why these sleeves are fantastic. These are easily stored in a purse or bag and can be left there all the time. Here's how you make them:
Can't sew? You can reuse old socks to make these! Cut out the middle of a sock and use it as a coffee sleeve. Make sure the socks are rather thick though. Thermal ones are good! You can even dye the sock a cool colour and iron on patches to make it more interesting. You can also crochet or knit these coffee sleeves too!

If you want to use socks you could use one sock inside another by cutting the tops off and stitching the raw edges around the bottom. It would give more thickness. (12/07/2007)
What a great idea. They would make great, inexpensive stocking stuffers! (12/07/2007)
That's a great idea, I also when I get a drink carrier I use it to hold my avocados and other fruits and veggies that can become easily bruised. (12/08/2007)
Here's a link to a picture of a knitted one. It looks very cute and personal.
