Is there somebody in your family who spends lots of time at Starbucks? Try these earth friendly coffee cup sleeves. Package it up with a bag of coffee beans or a coffee chop gift card and you have the perfect gift!
Cut the paper coffee sleeve or pull apart where it is attached.
Use this as your template to outline the pattern onto the exterior fabric, leaving a 1 cm seam allowance.
Repeat the same process with the interior fabric.
Repeat the same process with the fusible webbing but this time don't leave a seam allowance.
Iron the fusible webbing onto the exterior fabric. (Do not iron on the webbing side as this will melt and stick to your iron. Always iron on the fabric side.)
Fold the lower seam and without touching the webbing, iron inwards.
Repeat step 6 with the interior fabrics, do the same but without the webbing.
Place the interior fabric panel on top of the exterior panel and sew them together with neat seams at top and bottom. If you aren't happy with the look of the seam you can add bias tape at the top and bottom to neaten it up.
Sew a seam to form a circle out of the strip and place over a fresh disposable coffee cup.
You're ready to fill up your gift cup!
