This is one of those projects that I can’t help but share. I probably should have posted this a couple weeks ago, so you could have made a few to give as Valentine’s gifts, but better late than never! To make the sweet little cup cuff used in our Cozy Winter shoot, you will need an old sweater, a scrap of fabric, and a needle and thread.
When I accidentally washed and dried (and subsequently felted) a favorite wool sweater from Banana Republic, I was determined not to let it go to waste. So, I simply cut the cuff of the sweater off, and slipped it on my coffee cup. I loved how cozy and warm it looked on a cold winter’s day. To personalize the cuff for our Cozy Winter shoot, I printed “I AM LOVED” onto a piece of fabric using this method. Then I hand-stitched the tag onto the cuff. Perfectly simple and completely cozy!
