Coffee cup holder

As some of you know I've started a new job at a well known coffee shop. Since I will be drinking there even more regularly I thought it would be a good idea to have a reuseable coffee cup holder.
 To make it I used one of the disposable cupholders as a pattern and cut fabric and wadding out around it leaving a good seam allowance. The fabric I used is the yummy Twitterpated fabric. I may have to order another pack as I've sewn through mine in no time!

On the close-up picture you might be able to see that I added some quilting vertical rows to hold the shape well. I decorated it with Fun Flowers die cuts from the same pack of fabrics. The Big Shot is just great if you are cutting out fabric as you get detailed shapes that would take me hours to cut out by hand.

Today I am running my first 5km race. I hope it goes well as I've never done anything like that before....


  1. Hello you! Congrats on the new job! I love this idea for being a bit more eco friendly :)

    I have been being crafty lately, check oot my new-old (eco friendly too, mmhmm!) lamp!


  2. Wow I LOVE that lamp Hannah. Am now inspired to have a go at such homemade craftiness. Will post when I finally get to do the lamp alteration! xxx
