Today is another “I have no idea what to say” kinda day. Since I started writing about Shoes and their Countdown to Ignition promo last month, I’ve written a post every day and I plan on continuing in that thread.
I’m not a big coffee shop drinker but I do find myself occasionally getting a hot or cold drink from one of the chains. I am very much not a fan of the cardboard sleeves that they give you. They’re bulky and uncomfortable and really don’t help all that much. Cold drinks? Forget about it.
One day I was looking at some fabric and had a Voila moment. I could make my own cup sleeve. Created a pattern, threw some fabric and lining material together and my line of Cup Sleeves was born.
For my day job, I work at a school in the front office. We’re forever getting gifts from parents – thanks for tolerating my kids, thanks for being good people to my kids etc. I end up with alot of Starbucks gift cards. It dawned on me one day, as I made use of one of these cards, that the cardboard sleeve is not very comfortable to hold. It’s bulky and awkward.
Hmmm, there must be a solution to this. Helpful that I grew up as the child of a father who owned a Singer sewing store. I spent my young childhood around fabric and machines. I’ll make a fabric sleeve – and will line it with fleece. Beaded and Buttoned Cup Cozys were born.
I’ve just relisted a few in my shop – they’re fun, they’re green and they fit on all 3 sizes of hot and cold cups. Your hand stays cool with hot coffee and doesn’t freeze when you’re drinking a Frapp. Check them out –
