I am always doing things I can't do, that's how I get to do them.

Early in 2010 I researched a craft that caught my interest. In March I blogged about coffee sleeves made from recycled fabrics. I am happy (and excited!) to report that in September I took out the sewing machine my husband bought me last year, read the instructions and got started....
Me, my sister Loretta, (and 2 Cosmos)
I figured out the machine. I bought some cotton batting. Then I took the old shirts, jeans, fabrics, etc that I had collected and washed and used a cardboard coffee sleeve to use as a template. Once I made my first, I figured out how many I needed to make per week in order to have them ready to give as Christmas gifts and voila!
