It’s so nice to take a 5 minute break, so I can do some blogging instead of sewing :-).
As I mentioned last week, I signed up to my company’s Christmas craft fair (December 5th); but I was realizing the work I would need to do, to get stock to sell in the craft fair.
Things are coming along with the reusable coffee cup sleeves, and they are looking good. I have put in a significant amount of work into design, patch working and the quilting of these, but the most important thing…I am having a lot of fun doing it. You won’t believe this but I am having trouble keeping the sleeves for the fair – I have already sold 6 of them!!!
Here are some of the finished ones which I am keeping for the fair.
1. Coffee themed sleeve and coaster (coffee bean fabric from Spoonflower, designer: glimmericks)
2. Earth-toned sleeve (coffee cup featured material from Spoonflower, designer: heidikenney)
3. Blue, green and grey block sleeve
4. Red and Black Sleeves – SOLD!!
Here are some that are still a work in progress (take a look at last week’s blog for additional design’s):
I plan on making 10 coffee cup sleeve + coaster sets, and 20 individual coffee cup sleeve….that is in addition to what I just sold. All of them are either cut out or have the top at least sewn. This weekend, luckily with the long weekend, I should have them all done.
You amaze me! You’ll sell a ton of these to the Building R folks who are salivating awaiting the arrival of the Starbucks coffee shop!
