DIY by Victoria Belichenko. A cup warmer.

Tuesday, December 29, 2015

Today I have an absolutely awesome DIY by Victoria Belichenko. Now, when Christmas is over it is time to start collecting ideas for the St.Valentine's Day. Would a cup warmer like this make a great gift for your Valentine? What do you think?


Hello all, my name is Victoria. I would like to share a gift idea with you. It might look complicated, but it is not that hard to make. Give it a try!

You will need:

* a cup
* a few pieces of different colors of felt or fleece
* a piece of cardboard
* scissors
* stitching
* a needle
* 2 buttons 
* a piece of the Velcro fastener

Start with choosing your colors and measuring your cup.

Draft a suit pattern following your measurements. The outer diameter of your cup (minus the cup's handle) is the length of your rectangle. Its width is the height of the future suit. Remember that it needs to be practical and do not make it too high. Note how the neck line goes a bit lower. This is done not so much for the looks, but for more comfortable drinking from the cup that is going to wear the suit.

Cut out all the pieces from a piece of cardboard separately. Place them onto the fabric and cut them out from the fabric.

Assemble the suit.

Sew the pieces together with a straight short stitch.

That's it!

All is left is to sew the buttons and the Velcro fastener on (you can also glue them with the hot glue instead of sewing them).

Try it on your cup:

Which one do you prefer? :)

I hope the DIY is going to be helpful to some of you!
