Finished product

Here is Carol’s finished coffee sleeve. I think it’s pretty cute. I made one more for Etsy and one for FiberĀ  Notion.

My first try

first try at embroidery

This is my first attempt at embroidery. I used a backstitch from this book. The “a” looks a bit off, but it was a good try.

Tomorrow it will become a coffee sleeve for my sister-in-law. I wanted to add a personal touch because I thought the purple polka dots alone were not enough. I hope she likes it. Or, I hope you like it, Carol, if you happen to read this blog. You and James should expect a little package soon.
