Raw denim coffee cozy
I’ve always felt a little wasteful for heavily using those disposable coffee cup cozies, so I decided to make my own using scraps from tailored jeans.
Introducing the world’s first selvage coffee jacket!
Of course I used scraps from raw denim jeans that I had tailored, and I used the new chain stitch machine for all the sewing. It’s easy to carry around, I either keep it in my left rear pocket or I wear it like a wrist band. It totally does the job, keeps my drinks warm (or cool) and my hands lukewarm.
The photos are from my fave local coffee shop, Nervous Dog Coffee. Joe at Nervous Dog is big in to recycling, so he loved the cozy.
Note: I now have cozies and other goodies for sale on my Etsy account. Check it out at here
