I'm hooked...

Pure and simple! I got this idea that I'd make Coffee Cuffs for Christmas presents.... well after making a couple, I can't decide what to give away and what to keep.  I'll be making tons of these buggars as I've purchased LOTS of material, batting and muslin.

This one is a keeper for me, reminds me of my youth in the 70's!  I wore a pair of overalls from freshman to senior year (they ended up being patched up umpteen times)... haha!



This one is for my son Brooks (a coffee drinker like me) and environmentalist....he likes the buttons!


And this one which will most likely be for one of my sisters... or nieces... or friends... decisions... decisions....


Just thought I'd share.  Hey, are you watching me on the Hero Blog this week?  I'm doing Holiday Photo cards all week, come check it out!

Enjoy!

Looks good. We still have only 2 Starbucks here!!!!! and not many places where they give coffee in paper cups but if they did I would love one of these to use.

Fun idea, Shari! And they turned out so cool looking!

I had to giggle when I read the word "umpteen!" My mom used to say that all the time and I haven't heard it in ages!

Love the Hero Blog with you this week! Awesome job so far!

These are so dang cool!!! Mebbe I'll get that darn new machine I've had sitting unopened in a box for the last 3 years threaded yet . . . LOL!

These are so cute I might have to start drinking more coffee so I can make one. There's a Starbucks about a mile from my house and a local coffee shop called Brew Ha-Ha about the same distance. My daughter-in-law loves coffee and I can make one for her!!!!
