So, I'll take a refill on Mother's Day! How about you?
I made some personalized cuffs for my kid's teachers. For these I just stitched the kid's teacher's names on the cuff before I sewed them together. These made great end of the year thank you gifts. I slipped a Starbucks gift card inside them. Erin also has a coffee cozy pattern on her blog. Hers are super cute too!
I made her a coffee cuff. I actually made one for all the moms in my life. I filled them with gift cards to their favorite coffee shops so they could enjoy some treats. Every mom needs treats along the way, right? They were a lot of fun to make. It was also a great way to use some trendy fabrics. Pink milk and fairycakes' has a great coffee cozy tutorial on flickr. She has step by step pictures and directions that walk you through the entire process. One thing I found was that on the ends you don't need to add an inch when making your template, a half inch all the way around is fine. I added these cute tags to go inside the cup to give a bit more info on the coffee cuff. I slipped them in with the gift card and a personal note. They are over on my side bar if you'd like to print off some to use with your own coffee cuffs. I sprinkled some shredded package filler in the bottom to make everything a bit prettier.
I did miss seeing my mom though. (love you mom!) She's away on a golf trip, so I gave her gift to her early. She is such a great mom and she has a lot on her plate right now...I knew a coffee break would make her day.
