It's teacher appreciation week, so I made a coffee sleeve for each teacher and added a gift card so they can treat themselves to a cup of coffee. The cup template is a free download I found here. But seriously, these coffee sleeves make great gifts for your neighbors, co-works or just to give it to a friend just because.

  1. I love the basket weave stitch - it's so intriguing. My coffee cup has a handle but I have made one for it already, I think I will have a go at a basket weave version, inspired by you! Would love if you shared this at our Yarn Fanatic Party - http://eyeloveknots.blogspot.com/2015/05/yarn-fanatic-party-36-contd.html.
