I'm in all out Christmas present making/planning mode. We have lots of friends who are geocachers who survive on Tim Horton's coffee while out geocaching. I thought it would be a great idea to give them Timmy's gift certificates and a reusable coffee cuff as a little Christmas gift.
My first thought was to crochet them with this incredibly funky yarn. Ya, if you really aren't very good at crocheting, do NOT attempt to crochet with fancy shmancy yarn. The first several crochet attempts were BEYOND disasterous and were ripped out.
My next thought (which came very quickly) was to knit them. The first one I knit was way too large and was way too slippy. The second was way too small and wouldn't fit around the cup. This is my last (and still failed) attempt. It fits around the cup (barely) around the top and bottom but it's still pretty slippy and loose around the middle, which won't work.
So, this morning I decided to just sew them. This is NOT my first attempt. After about 1.5 hours of tweaking the size, this is what I have.
It's slightly quilted with raw edges that have been zig-zagged. Simple to make and I think they will make cute little gifts when combined with a gift card.
