Slate Coffee Sleeve

  • Coffee_sleeve_green Pin-it%402x


‘Don’t even mess with me until I’ve finished this cup of caffeine. Thank you.’

With gold pyramid studs and chain this coffee sleeve speaks for you on your morning commute. The studs make the most classic of color combinations slightly tough. Just like you.



  • slate black felt
  • midnight black thread
  • gold pyramid studs
  • brass ball chain

Gather your tools and materials. You'll need to gather scissors, the larger sewing needle, pliers, tape, and print the tutorial.

Cs2 Pin-it%402x

Cut around the exterior of the printed pattern.

Cs3w Pin-it%402x

Tape it to the felt to secure it while you cut the felt.

Cs4 Pin-it%402x

Cut the felt along the edge of the pattern.

Cs6w Pin-it%402x

Cut about a yard of the black embroidery thread. Thread your needle and double knot the thread at the very end.

Cs7 Pin-it%402x

First you'll stitch the ball chain to the felt with small whip stitches. Begin on the top lefthand corner.

Cs10 Pin-it%402x

Hold the felt and chain in one hand and stitch them together with the other. We used small stitches and stitched from right to left.

Cs11 Pin-it%402x

Stitch until you reach the end of the felt.

Cs12 Pin-it%402x

Once you've reached the end of the top side flip the coffee sleeve over, knot the thread, and snip it.

Cs13w Pin-it%402x

Clip off the excess ball chain with scissors or jewelry clippers. (Make sure they're old scissors!)

Cs14 Pin-it%402x

Cut a second yard of thread. Thread the needle, knot the thread, and begin stitching the ball chain to the bottom of the felt sleeve. Use the same small stitches that you used for the top.

Cs15w Pin-it%402x

When you've finished sewing the chain on, knot and snip the thread on the back side of the felt. Flip the felt over and clip the ball chain.

Cs17w Pin-it%402x

Now that you've finished stitching the ball chain to the felt line up the two short ends. You'll stitch this together next to create the seam.

Cs16 Pin-it%402x

Cut a third length of thread. Thread your needle and knot the thread.

Cs18w Pin-it%402x

Holding the felt in one hand stitch the ends together using short stitches.

Cs19 Pin-it%402x

Stitch away! Use small, even stitches but don't be overly concerned making them perfect as you'll cover them with studs in the next step.

Cs19 Pin-it%402x

Continue stitching until you reach the end of the felt.

Cs20w Pin-it%402x

Knot the thread and snip the excess.

Cs21w Pin-it%402x

Line up the first stud with the edge of the felt. Push the prongs through the felt and fold them over each other on the interior of the sleeve.

Cs22 Pin-it%402x

You may want to use pliers to fold over the prongs.

Cs23 Pin-it%402x

Continue adding studs along the seam until you've reached the end.

Hey there, What a cute project! I love it so much that I decided to feature it in our roundup of homemade coffee cozies! Check it out here: http://www.favecraftsblog.com/link-love-coffee-cozies/ Have a great day!

Done. I'm not a great stitcher, so it looks a little sloppy, but I like it.

Quite intricate with all of the stitching. I'm not a very avid sewer, so it probably took me longer than some others. I like the finished product. I may have cut the pattern a little small, as I ended up only using nine studs on the seam. I decided to add the extra one to the front of the cozy, which adds a tiny touch of 'tude.
