Free Pattern - Cup Sleeve

by Kyoko Nakayoshi

Time is valuable and it is not surprising that there are a growing number of disposable goods for convenience. It is hard for one to make a signicant positive impact on society, the environment, whatever you call it. But I always believe that no matter how small, if you do a good thing eventually it will lead to a good result. There is a saying in Japanese which literally translates to piled-up specks of dust become a mountain, meaning many small efforts combined bring great success. I recently made a cup sleeve that saves using a paper cup sleeve each time you buy a cup of coffee to take out. Hopefully this free tutorial would be used by many to make their own cup sleeve and save on having to use more paper in the caf. Enjoy sewing!

Skill LevelEasy. For the best result make sure you take time to cut the pattern and iron precisely.

Materials1 sheet of approx. 20cm x 20cm exterior fabric 1 sheet of approx. 20cm x 20cm interior fabric 1 sheet of approx. 15cm x 20cm fusible wadding (I used Vilene Soft High Loft H640) Matching machine sewing thread

Approximate Finished SizeWidth: 12cm Width: 6cm This depends on the template used.

Step 1. Cut the sleeve in two equal parts. Trim if necessary for a smooth shape.

Step 2. Outline the pattern onto the exterior fabric. Add 1cm seam allowance. Make two. Repeat the same process for the interior fabric. Make sure that the vertical line on the sleeve (red arrow) is aligned with the grain of the fabric (blue arrow).

Step 3. Repeat the same process with the fusible wadding WITHOUT adding the seem allowance.

Step 4. Iron the fusible wadding onto the exterior fabric. Do not iron on the wadding side as this will melt and stick to your iron. Always iron on the fabric side. Fold the lower seam and without touching the actual wadding (to avoid melting it) iron inwards. Note that the ironed seam is slightly curved (see blue arrow).

Step 5. Repeat step 4 for the other exterior fabric. For the interior fabrics, do the same but without the wadding.

Step 6. Sew the side seams (blue dotted lines).

Step 7. Open the side seams and iron gently (blue arrows). Make sure that the bottom seam is still folded inwards (green arrow). Repeat for the interior fabric.

Step 8. With the right side facing each other, place the interior fabric inside the exterior. Sew the top seam (blue dotted line). Pull the interior fabric out and open the sewn seam. Gently iron the shaded area.

Step 9. Turn the work back out. Secure the bottom seam (remember it is folded) with pins or clips.

Step 10. Finally, sew the bottom seam at 2.5mm from the edge. Then sew the top at 2.5mm from the edge (blue dotted lines).
