Resource: Imagine Fabric

Today we'll show you step-by-step on how to make a fabric coffee sleeve. It is a wonderful project that can be done in one afternoon and the fabric coffee sleeve makes a great gift. A fabric coffee sleeve is reusable, washable and environmentally friendly. Furthermore, you need only a little bit of scrap fabric. That's as good as it gets!

If you don't drink coffee, then use it as a tea sleeve. Who does not like to drink their tea without burning their hand?

First of all, save your next paper sleeve that you get with your daily morning coffee. Use the coffee paper sleeve as your "pattern".

Add 1/4 inch to your pattern for seam allowance.

Cut out your paper pattern. Use it to trace the coffee sleeve pattern on to your desired fabric and cut two fabric pieces. In this case, I used a beautiful Moda fabric polka dot design from the Bistro fabric collection (we are unfortunately sold out of this design and collection).

Place the two fabric pieces right side together. Start to sew along the top (long) edge of the sleeve leaving 1/4 inch at the front and back of the edge in addition to leaving a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Then sew along the bottom / short edge of the sleeve leaving about 2 inches at the front and back of the edge in addition to leaving a 1/4 inch seam allowance. See below picture.

Now turn the fabric sleeve right side out.

Now sew the sides of the sleeve together leaving a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

Once you have stitch the sides together, you are almost done.

You just need to top stitch at the opening that we used to turn the sleeve inside out. Voila, another fabric project completed successfully.
