I know that I get easily ‘distracted’ when it comes to sewing. I have a tendency to work on a project, see something that I have to make, then shove it aside to work on the new item – this is how my UFO (Un-Finished Objects) pile grows… and this is how my latest project came into being. Partners were assigned in the Keep Me Warm Swap last night and I was inspired to make this coffee cuff after ‘stalking’ my partner. Essentially I used an interfaced layer of fabric for the exterior and a piece of Jiffy Grip (that bumpy stuff you use for non-skid soles of slippers and kids footed pajamas) for the underside (with a layer of fusible interfacing in between) – this should keep the cuff from slipping off the cup while you’re drinking. The finished cuff is held together by an elastic band and large button.
I have to say, these are so easy to make and so cute – if I had more family members that drank coffeeteahot chocolate, I’d make them some… although this time I might give this design a whirl.
With that said, it’s time to get back to my Sunday Sling – it’s almost finished and I am determined that it will not become a UFO. How is every else’s New Year’s sewing going?
