Step 1: Trace and Cut Template
Step 2: Cutting Your 2 Fabrics and Your Batting.
Step 3: Joining the Layers Into Cones...
Take the other arch shaped piece of fabric, fold it in half right sides together and stitch along that flat edge. Turn it inside out so your seams are on the inside of your cone. Now place this cone inside of the cone containing batting, and line them up so they are sitting comfortably inside each other. Do not try to line up the two seams thoughâ¦it is best if they do not line up as they will create bulk if they land in the same spot.
Step 4: Joining the Cones Together...
Once your sure you have that completed, flip the cup so the right sides of your fabric are showing, one on the inside of the cup, and one on the outside. (Because these cup holders are reversible, it does not matter which fabric falls on the inside or outside.)
Step 5: Cut and Add Binding to Top of Cup
Now, face your binding strip up against the inside of your cup holder with the open sides facing up. Fold the beginning end at a 45% angle with the flap of fabric laying against the open seam line as shown in picture for this step. Once you have it placed how you want it, pin it in place. Stitch around the circle leaving at least a ÃÂ¼ inch seam allowance. When you hit the end of the circle, stitch right across your existing stitch about an inch. Snip off the extra unused binding.
Step 6: Finishing Off the Beverage Holder
VIOLA! You should now have a completed, reversible cup holder that will keep your hot beverages hot, and your cold beverages cold.
