reusable coffee sleeves

I'm not a morning person. Believe me, I've tried to be and it just isn't my thing. Travis can roll straight out of bed hit the shower and his day is a go. Me on the other hand it takes several long minutes to wake up and drag myself out of bed. I'm groggy and usually in a sour mood until I have a cup of coffee. If I don't have coffee i'm just not right for the rest of the day.
I decided to make some reusable coffee sleeves as holiday gifts (it is December 1st after all and Christmas is only 24 days away!!!) and they turned out so well that I think i'll be listing some in the shop soon. They're easy to keep in your purse, and work really well! Plus they just look plain cute around your cup o' joe.
Here's the array of patterns I made. Oh, and the best part is that they are reversible, so you really get two different designs in one sleeve. I also have some very special fabric I may use to make a few very special sleeves for some very special people (i'll share those later). 

I was thinking I may add some ruffles or flowers or some kind of embellishment to some as well. What do you think, leave them as is or add something extra?

These make great gifts. Teachers, postman, babysitter, co-workers, church friends...anyone that likes coffee (or hot tea!). Plus, I bet if you threw in a gift card to their favorite coffee shop you'd be the best friend a person could ask for (at least in my book).
Check the shop soon to snag one up, or you can email me at and I can get one to you.
