Happy April!!! Spring is on it's way here in Anchorage and I couldn't be happier. I saw grass today for the first time since October and can't wait to see the first brave daffodils!
Here in Anchorage there are coffee huts galore and every time I get a coffee with a paper sleeve I always think to myself that I should just make one but that has never happened. But after seeing the coffee sleeve my cousin made on her blog Maddi's World I was spurred on to making my own. Mine is definitely not as cute or as detailed as hers but I think it turned out alright. It's very no frills. I took a paper coffee sleeve, opened it and used it as a template to cut out a piece of a green felted sweater and sewed the ends together. I briefly attempted to cut out Java like my cousin Tania but didn't like my results so I decided to make a coffee cup to put on my coffee sleeve. So far everyone who has seen it can tell what it is, always a good thing. Next time I would use a lighter color for the cup to contrast the darker color of the sleeve. I can't wait to use it the next time I get coffee!
