If you’re like me, you go to college. You wander campus and see lots of people wearing school pride on their shirts, shorts, pants, bags, and what-have-you.
Why not your coffee cup?
Since I go to Purdue University, I thought I’d start there. Other colleges will be available, too! The next one I want to do is Indiana University, since I went there at one time, too.
Here is the Purdue cup sleeve in all its glory!
I followed the same pattern that I used for the previous cup, only I joined in different colors. Purdue’s colors are black and gold, so I happened to have that yarn handy. Voila! A spirited cup sleeve to keep my coffee nice and warm.
I gave the other cup sleeve a test run today and, I must say, it works great! I like to get my coffee extra hot (who needs taste buds!) but it often became too cool for my liking shortly after getting it. I was using the atypical cup belt (I refuse to call it a sleeve any longer) so the coffee above and below the belt grew cold very quickly. Don’t even get me started on the temperature of the coffee near the end! ICE-COLD, PEOPLE.
So I rectified that. And I am very happy with the results.
Whenever I get around to opening an Etsy store, this will go for $5 plus shipping!
I’m so happy to have a quick and easy project to do when doll making is getting on my nerves.
