Reusable Coffee Cuff!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I have seen these reusable coffee cuffs everywhere online (think, etsy.com):



and I was thinking about buying one, especially after today, since starbucks ran out of sleeves and I had to burn myself as I walked to work.

And then I thought to myself, screw that, I can make one myself! for less! and it will be in the material and everything that I want!

so I made one tonight!

Tada!

lol!

I hope it works too! It should do, since it has an elastic hook, but if it doesn't, I can just move the button until it fits perfectly

Sounds like a job for Velcro? Lol.

Re: Reusable Coffee Cuff!

it worked! yay!

it kept my coffee super warm too! and the good thing is, you can wear it as a bracelet/cuff, so you won't lose it between using it on your coffee cup!

Re: Reusable Coffee Cuff!

very cute you could do hidden velcro and still have button as ''functional decoration''

Re: Reusable Coffee Cuff!

yes, I thought about doing that - the template I used to make it with wasn't long enough though, so I knew I'd need a button/elastic thingy

Rosie, my hands thanks you ! It looks very cute, let me shop in my mother's stash, she still has tons of fabric from the time she tried patchwork, i have to have my own.

Re: Reusable Coffee Cuff!

Thanks Rosie ! I'll have to go buy some fabric first, i don't think i have one that's thick enough. I was thinking green with little cherries. Then i think i'll use velcro as well as the elastic/button method.

Re: Reusable Coffee Cuff!

I know its an old thread...
I like that cuff. The button and elastic would make it able to adjust automatically to the diameter of the cup by slipping the cuff bottom first. Elastic with stretch around. Velcro, you'd have to open the cuff and size it to the cup by closing it around again.

Re: Reusable Coffee Cuff!

Why have I never seen this thread before? lol!

When I saw the first pic, I was like "That looks like something someone could just make themselves," and you did! And yours looks way better! So cute!
