        I sorry I am not getting notification on when I get posts to my threads!! I am hoping this was today you asked this question..Well a coffee sleeve or other names people may call them are Coffee Cozies..Java Jackets...you get them when you go get your coffee with the paper cups they are usually cardboard that fit over the cup so you don't burn your hands!! So I made them fashionable in fabric..well I can't take credit for the pattern...I bought it and it is the most easy and wonderful project for anyone...I hope this explains what they are to you. I will have get some pics and post them in the gallery for you to see...

          Thanks for the explanation. Looks like I really don't get out enough anymore !! I can see why they would be fun to make and give...and use.

            I made one for my daughter.....no pattern.......just a coffee shop used one and a little luck........ the "M" is her initial.........thought it was cute and I have a photo.......... a fun little project.....didn't take long and not much fabric..........just a little imagination.  They can be made really fancy and cute, too!

            looks like a very special gift for a little time.  Makes drinking in those paper cups, (which I'm not fond of) a little nicer.

            thanks for the picture.

            did you make a seam to slide on the cup or use hook and loop to close?

            Hook and loop......the snag-free kind.  Works great.

          I too didn't get e-mail notifications of postings to me for several days. Today, Saturday, is the first day in several that I did get a notification, so maybe things are back on track.

    Hello,What pattern did you use for the casserole cover?

    1. rebe | | #8

       I got it in America Sews. It is at the bottom of this link.

      However, I changed it up.

      Instead of cutting two of the printed fabric, I cut one of the printed fabric and then I cut one of quilted ironing board fabric.. you know the silver stuff.

      Each cut piece I put the wrong sides together and then requilted following the prequilted lines of the ironing board fabric. I then serged around each piece.

      The top piece I cut down the middle and inserted the separating zipper... it was alot easier that way.

       

      I made five of these things and they really turned out nice. It just takes time to quilt the layers of fabric together.

        Thank you for the website. I downloaded the instructions and am going to make a few. 

        Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Amapola

    As usual, I'm sewing for my grandkids making quilts for all of them plus a nightgown for granddaughter and matching gown for her new American Girl doll.  I can tell I'll spend many happy hours making dollclothes for this new doll.  I feel like I've come full circle in my sewing having started making doll clothes at the tender age of 8 for my dollies.  I used newpapers to make my patterns then and am now learning to draft clothes for myself.
