Let me preface this post by saying I don't have a sewing machine (yet)! So I had to hand sew this, thus the ghettoness of it! =)
Joann Fabric was having a red tag sale on some fabric this weekend so I picked up 1/4 yard of four different fabrics! I wanted to play with my new goodies, so I decided to make a coffee hugger! I looked online and found this tutorial to follow.
Here are all the goodies I needed:
I didn't have a starbucks hugger so I wrapped a piece of paper around my smoothie king cup and trimmed it until it was the right size.
Then I cut out the fabric leaving about 1/2 in excess. I wanted a cute embellishment on the hugger, so I used my new fabric. I sewed it on one of the strips of plain fabric in an accordian fashion. It's kinda crooked and wacky but I like it!
Then I pinned a 4 1/2 in strip of elastic so that it pointed inwards and sewed the two pieces of fabric right side together.
After I was done I flipped the pieces right side out and stitched the remaining side shut. I added a button for the elastic to wrap around and I was done!
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
I finally got to go yardsaling and found a BUNCH of treasures! More to come on those soon!
***I edited to add in these photos! I finally treated myself to a cup of coffee and my hugger fits great! Works good too! Probably doesn't absorb as much heat as the Starbucks hugger, but my hands are sensitive and I can handle it!***
