A very good friend of mine, asked if I had any coffee cup sleeves left ,as she wanted to give one as a gift. I was excited about another order but I only had a couple of plain tops made (a black, red and blue one) but none complete. None of these tops were very inspiring.
Then, the other day I got an order from Fresh Modern Fabric who included a couple of mini charm pieces of Tsuru fabric line. I love this fabric, and I decided to make a coffee cup sleeve using these charm pieces + some solid colors (which were from my prize from “The girl who quilts“, thank you…thank you). Then, suddenly, I had another idea……lets try some hexagons. I used grey felt for the back in, grey cotton for the quilting, and of course, my usual hair-tie and button.
Here is the end result, I will definitely make a few more of these.
As I fell in love with this Tsuru fabric, I was ecstatic when I read a blog last week about the price cuts at Contemporary Cloth (I am so sorry I forgot who it was I read it from…..but whoever it was thank you 🙂 )…..guess what they had on special – yes you guessed it the Tsuru 8 fat quarter bundle. Today my bundles arrived:
Tsuru Fat Quarter Bundle + 1 yard piece ( Cloud 9):
Mecca for Moderns fat quarter Bundle (Alexander Henry Fabric)….another one I have been eyeing lately:
Lastly, Cloud 9 organic 5 fat quarter bundle (Blue/yellow):
Make sure you go over and check out the sales 🙂
I love the coffee cup sleeve! The hexagons look really great. 🙂
Did you notice your fabric, it worked perfectly 🙂
