Pumpkin Spice Fabric Coffee Cup Wraps

What could be better for Pumpkin Spice week than themed coffee cup wraps?
I’m more of a chai tea or cider girl myself, but these wraps are cute and cozy enough for any warm fall drink.

I used the Hello Fall collection by Jessica Flick for Benartex Fabrics, and I am in love with the fun autumn prints in this line! I chose a few to use on their own, and then made a pieced version as well, combining some of my favorite smaller prints. A layer of Fusible Fleece protects your hands from heat and creates a comfortable grip for your cup. And don’t forget a little Velcro to help your wrap hug the cup!


You’ll Need (to make one wrap):
(2) 6″ x 13″ pieces (for wrap front and back)

(1) 6″ x 13″ piece HeatnBond Fusible Fleece

2″ of 1″-wide velcro

How to Make the Fabric Coffee Cup Wrap

Step 1 Cut out the wrap template. Fold the 6″ x 13″ Fusible Fleece piece in half and position the template on the folded edge as indicated. Pin in place. Cut out the template shape from the Fleece.

Step 2 Position the fleece sleeve shape on the wrong side of the front 6″ x 13″ fabric piece. Note: If you’re trying to center a design (like my Hello Fall wrap), use a lightbox or a window to check the placement of the fleece on the fabric. You can also use pins to mark placement.

Step 3 Fuse the Fleece to the fabric, pressing from the fabric side.

Step 4 Quilt the fabric/fleece unit as desired, extending the quilting lines about 1/4″ past the fleece. Note: I quilted vertical lines, approximately 1/4″ to 1/2″ apart. Layer the quilted front right sides together on the 6″ x 13″ back piece and pin in place.

Step 5 Stitch along the outer edge of the fleece all the way around, leaving an opening along one short edge. Trim seam allowance to 1/4″ past the fleece edge. Tip: Leave a 3/8″ seam allowance along the opening – it’ll be easier to sew it closed in the next step.

Step 6 Turn wrap right side out, poking out corners and sides as needed with a turning tool. Press the wrap, and then press the raw edges of the opening in. Topstitch around the entire wrap, closing up the opening along the short edge.

Step 7 Separate the velcro pieces. Sew one to the back side of the wrap and one to the opposite front side. Stitch around all sides of the velcro to secure.


Pieced Wrap Option

To make a pieced wrap, you’ll need:
2″ x 12″ strips of 6-7 fabrics,
(1) 6″ x 13″ piece for backing
(1) 6″ x 13″ muslin piece
