Coffee sleeve

4 Jun

I managed to get a little something done today in the way of sewing. I asked the boys for a 5 minute break late this afternoon and they managed to mostly play nice with only a couple of trips in their room to restore law and order,  so that I was able to sew this together.

I did the embroidery while we were outside playing and used the five minutes they gave me to sew the pieces of wool felt together. I think this may be my favorite sleeve so far. I got the embroidery pattern from Wild Olive and attempted to iron transfer the pattern with an iron transfer pen (that was a little redundant) but that didn’t work out so well so I had to freehand draw the inside of the cup. I can’t wait to use this little guy tomorrow and show him off!

    So cute! And I remember those days of squeezing projects in between children’s arguments! 🙂

      Thank you! Sometimes I wonder if I had two girls if I would be breaking up as many arguments!

        I love to drink tea, but I love the coffee one with that cute little bean!
