We’re back with some re-purposed sweater projects! My sister Hayley handed over a great sweater to me when a hole bust in it. She knew I could use it for something so she saved it for me. I know I’ll find many ways to re-purpose it, but the first thing I did was make a reusable coffee cup sleeve. It was easy as anything to make. I cut three inches off the sleeve and slid it onto the cardboard cup.
A few notes here though. This sweater was a tight enough knit that it stays put on the cup. But, some knits may be loose on the cup and will slide around and you could risk dropping the cup all together. In that case, I recommend cutting a piece of crafting foam the same size and gluing the two together. This way the foam will grip the cup and it won’t slide around.
It was so easy to make and offers a nice environmentally conscious feel to your morning coffee when a travel mug is lacking!
