Anyway, I dug out both the magazine and the book and made my own coffee cuff! I just pieced some strips together, fused some leaves, and machine blanket stitched them down. Then layered that with dream puff batting and a another fabric scrap for backing. Quilted the leaf veins and couched the yarn. Cut it all to size using the template, zig zag the edges, then join the ends by top stitching and Voila! A coffee cuff! Much prettier than the cardboard ones the coffee shops use. And start to finish took 20 minutes!

On my lunch break
A few weeks ago Carla posted about coffee cuffs she made with her logo. They were great! And they reminded me I had seen an article a while back (almost 1 year ago) in Quilting Arts Magazine with directions on how to make them. After reading the article again, it occurred to me that I had the book that originally had the pattern. (your mind is a terrible thing to lose, LOL)
