It occurred to me that some of you haven’t been with me for an entire year yet, and may have missed out on some of the fun (for me anyway) that was the Coffee Cup Sleeve of the Month series. Not to mention, I just wanted to see them all gathered up in one place, one last time.
It all started with a Father’s Day Fish for the angler dads out there.
Since I was planning a month ahead, that was followed by the Pinwheel, made in patriotic red, white and blue for Independence Day.
As fall approached, I started thinking about new school clothes, which led to the New Jeans sleeve.
The Halloween Bat was one of the first sleeve patterns I sketched.
This little Fox was so much fun to make.
This calm Christmas Tree was perfect for the hectic season.
The Pennant Banner was nice with the winter theme, but a change of fabric and this would work for any season.
Valentine’s Day had me focusing on hearts, so naturally that lead to the Heart and Arrow sleeve.
The Rainbow sleeve was a bit of a bumpy road, but worth it in the end.
I had actually made a slightly different version of the Class of ‘14 sleeve a year ago, but had to hold onto the pattern until just the right time to share it this year.
Of course my final sleeve, or Bride and Groom pair of sleeves in this case, was a set I’ve been wanting to make since my daughter got engaged a year ago.
That’s what my last year has looked like. These were fun for me and I looked forward to the next one every month. I hope you’ve enjoyed them, and maybe added one or two of them to your own collection!
