Coffee cutness Tutorial !

So I have seen some different knitted coffee cup sleeves here and there in blog land. I thought they were so cute but I'm not much of a knitter. One of My bff's Birthdays was coming up and I know she would appreciate this as a gift because she's a big coffee and tea drinker. 

So I thought I'd try...

First I Measured my felt around a coffee cup I had. 

 Then cut out my bird.

I Sewed on the eye and beak.Well I glued on the beak and the body It was just faster that way. 

I hand stitched the edges for a more finished look. Hand stitching is so relaxing... It reminds me of my Grandmother.

Then sewed on my button on one end.

I sewed on a small piece of elastic on the back side, I had to cover up the stitch. So I used some twine I had.  

 This is what i looks like from the back, The elastic catches the button.

 The finished product! Loves It!!!
More importantly Drea Loved it!

  And She had a great Birthday!!!
Love you Dre!
