What's in a Coffee cup?

First, I must say - I don't drink coffee - so, my cup won't be holding any coffee - hot chocolate or tea maybe, but not coffee. However, I found this ADORABLE pattern at the Fabric store the other day - and just HAD to create one of these. Now, I am sure you are asking 'okay, what is this?' Well, it is called a MUG COVER. When I saw it I just had to have it - so much so that I just bought the pattern instead of waiting for a sale. I had bought fabric from Stampin' Up! last Fall when they came out with their new fabric and hadn't done anything with it because I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with it. This fabric set is called Deck the Halls and goes along with their Bells and Boughs Stamp set. Anyway, back to this little project. The mug cover has pockets on the inside and on the outside, so you can really fill this up with all kinds of goodies. I am using it for my stamping tools and let me tell you - it is SO easy to find the items I need right there in front of me rather than digging through another less attractive container. This little project went together SO fast too. Of course, I have been sewing long before I ever knew what a stamp was - so it was a quick little project for me. Just think of the possibilities with this little cover! A cup filled with sewing tools for those that sew, perhaps filled with markers and paint brushes for those that like to do watercoloring with markers. How about one filled with colored pencils and tools for the student? The ideas are quite endless really. I am planning on making several of these for holiday gifts.
I hope you appreciate my diversion from paper to show you my cute little tool holder project. I have created a button where you can order your mug cover - you will find it in the right sidebar. The choices of fabric are limitless as I have a huge stash of fabric, so email me and let me know what your favorite colors are. I have a limited supply of the Stampin' Up! fabrics presently.

This is fun - no need to apologize for the sewing diversion either - it's great just seeing your creativity. The little pockets are quite delightful.
Enjoy the weekend.

Such an awesome idea and a great way to repurpose those chipped or not so pretty mugs! TFS!
