A cup cozy.
Step 1: Tools and Materials Needed
Really big coffee cup
½" Velcro® (or other hook & pile fastener)
Spandex bonded neoprene rubber
The material I used was Spandex bonded to both sides of a sheet of Neoprene. It's the same stuff wetsuits are made of.
Step 2: Cut the Bottom
After tracing the perimeter of the base, cut around your marking leaving about ½" of space around the edge.
Step 3: Cut the Side Wrapper
Next cut the material, again leaving a ½" buffer of extra material.
Step 4: Notch the Fabric for the Handle
Mark and cut a notch to allow the fabric to slide under the handle.
Step 5: Cut the Fabric for Length
Notch the other side of the fabric for the handle.
Step 6: Burn the Edges
Step 7: Attach the Velcro
Cut the Velcro to the length of the area under the handle and sew it on to the material.
Points to remember.
- We sew this thing together from the inside, then turn it inside out.
- The Velcro is attached to both sides of the fabric. The hook is on one side. The pile is on the opposite side and at the other end of the fabric.
Step 8: Sew the Base
Wrap the fabric around the material and mark it. Sew the material together at the mark then trim the excess.
Step 9: Attach the Bottom
Attach the two together. Sew along the lines that you previously marked.
After sewing, trim off the excess material.
Step 10: Turn It Inside Out and Slip It On!
Turn it inside out and slip it onto your cup. Fill it up and enjoy that big cup of coffee.
