Starbucks (Stacie Style)

I'm not a coffee drinker--love the smell, just don't like the taste--but I have had enough co-workers that are colossal pains in the backside much less efficient if they don't have their java fix. Hey, I once gave up diet soda for 40 days and there were many who narrowly escaped the clutches of my non-caffeinated evil twin, so I totally understand the addictive nature of caffeine.

Anyway, I have been wanting to try my hand at these cute coffee cup cozies that I have seen around blogland and I recently had the perfect excuse. The Ja- half of Team Jacie drops the little one off at my house each morning and I've seen the look of despair on his face when on a few occasions he has dropped/knocked over/spilled his coffee, so knowing how much his daily fix meant to him, I knew that a coffee cozy would be a great gift from his little one for Father's Day. I wanted to practice, so I made a girly version first using the tutorial here. Once I finished that one, I moved on to the Photo Coffee Sleeve found here. They won't help you out if you get the dropsies, but at least your cup will look good!
