I drink coffee everyday and I feel like these sleeves go to waste. I try to remember to save them but sometimes I forget.
So I decided to make these reusable ones. Bonus: they're CUTE!
I started by fusing together used grocery bags. (If we are doing the eco friendly thing, we've gotta go all the way.) If you need a tutorial on fusing bags, go here.
Once they are all fused together use a sleeve as a template to cut the shape out of the bags. I used a template that I got offline and it was too small. I would suggest using one from a coffee shop.
Then you will have something like this.
Use the same template and cut out a scrap of fabric a little bit smaller than the plastic sleeve.
I picked out a colored thread. I thought red would go cute with the black and white fabric. I stitched a straight line around the edge to make sure the layers of plastic wouldn't separate.
Then I used a zig zag stitch to hold down the fabric.
I think it turned out really cute with the red thread
I used some hot glue to attach velcro to the edges.
Then you're done.
