Yo! You guys have been so great to us, we thought we’d make this video tutorial showing you how to make your own AmyD Coffee Sleeve! The pattern is here too. Just print it on regular paper and cut it out. You can also trace your favorite coffee shop’s coffee sleeve, but that always feels weird to me.
When we started making these sometime around 2005 we got several cups and came up with a size that fits them all pretty well. Starbuck’s cups tend to be skinnier but taller than most independent coffee shops cups that I’ve come across. We’ve seriously tried to make the best coffee sleeves for you so we put a lot of thought into crap like this!
You’ll need felt, scissors, and basic sewing skills. We use a machine, but there’s no reason you can’t hand-sew it. Also, we use fake felt that is made from recycled soda bottles. It’s called Eco-fi and we love it. It seems you guys do too! For the applique, we use stiffened felt, but you can embroider something or leave it plain. It’s your coffee sleeve after all!
Let me know if you have any questions!
It also helps to have wretched fingernails and dry hands to really bring it all together.
And you can still buy them from us of course and use the time we spent making it by making sweet sweet love!
And right here is your pattern. Just click on it and print it!
We used the awesome app, Shadow Puppet to make our video
