My fabric sleeves came out to under $.25. I used fabric remnants bought from a quilting shop. A large ziploc bag cost $1, plus I got to pick and choose the pieces. I also found a bag of binding at Goodwill ~ 10 unused packs for $1.99. ALWAYS check their craft isle. The only item that I purchased for full price was the 1/4 yard of ironing board fabric which ran $5.99/yard.
- Fabric remnants
- Ironing board fabric for center heat barrier layer
- Starbucks cardboard sleeve (used as template)
Lay the template out flat and trace onto the backside of the front, middle and back fabric layers.
Gather all three layers, with front side out and pin together.
Straight stitch around the perimeter, as close to the edge as possible.
Pin binding to top and sew on. Repeat on bottom.
Pin ends together, overlapping the two ends.
Sew ends together with a straight stitch.
And, voilà, you're finished~
Now wasn't that easy?
