Spooktacular coffee cup sleeve tutorial

Today I wanted to share this very simple coffee cup sleeve pattern.


I decided to choose Halloween theme for this one, but of course, the possibilities are endless, especially with the Holidays coming. :)

To make this cup cozy, you will need:

- #3/light yarn

- crochet hook # F/3.75

The pattern: 

Ch36, join carefully-not to twist the stitches.

I am using tall Starbucks cup.

Round 1-4: sc all the way around. Place a stitch marker to know where each round ends.

Round 5: 2sc in the 1st stitch, sc in the next 17 sts, 2 sc in the next st, sc in the next 17 sts.

Round 6-13: sc all the way around.

Round 14: work crab stitch all the way around.

Finish off, weave in ends.

Now when the sleeve is done, the fun part begins;)

To make the felt patch, you will need:

- felt

- embroidery hoop

- embroidery floss

- needle

- heat transfer pencil

- iron

- scissors

- any embellishments you like

First, you will need to type the text  and then you will need to print it out. You will have to reverse the text before printing, because it will be backwards when you apply it to the felt.

Then I crabbed my  Hot  Iron Heat Transfer Pencil (bought it at Michael's), and traced over the text.

Then simply place the print on top of the felt face down and pressed it with a hot iron.

And now the text is transfered and ready.:)

The lines of the text will be permanent, so you will want to cover them completely with embroidery stitches.

I should say that I just love this part of the project.I am a total beginner in embroidery and I enjoy it so much. I just hope that one day I will be able to make something more complicated and beautiful. :)

So when you are done with embroidery and other embellishments, just simply sew the patch to the sleeve.And you are done!

Isn't it a fun and simple project? I got carried away and made another one...

..and another...

and 9 more :) They are all available in my shop.

I hope you will have fun making these cozies- and let me know if you have any questions!

Wish you all a very SPOOKtacular Halloween!

Pin It!
