Reusable coffee cup sleeves – SOLD!!

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.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

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.
