This Free In The Hoop Ribbon Awareness Cup Wrap is my latest embroidery design and it is a good one! We are in Breast Cancer Awareness month so this design is timely for that but did you know that the Ribbon is used for so many other causes?
I visited Disabled-world.com and pulled their graphic above. If you click on the link or picture it will take you to their site where you can learn more about each ribbon and cause. *NOTE* Some of the colors may not be listed and they are always adding causes to each color so you will probably want to go to each Organization cause on their social media sites and verify before you stitch out this embroidery design or make a donation.* That being said, let me tell you about this embroidery design.
Other than being completely FREE, the other most important fact is you will need at least an 8x12 embroidery hoop to complete the project. When you stitch the design you will have two Fleece cup wraps that are oh so soft. You can use different color fleece and thread for your cause. See in the picture above that they will fit on Plastic cups. I also use mine on stainless steel insulated cups.
The front will sew your ribbon design which is simple but effective to showcase the pattern on your fleece.
You will also have a buttonhole that sews in the design. Once complete, a needle and thread will be used to sew on your button. Here we used a 5/8 inch button. Have fun picking out cute ones!
Here is a little bonus for you! Included in the design download is a PDF gift tag. Just print these out on heavy duty paper or cardstock and slide the cup cozy over it. Fill in the blank area with your name so the person receiving the cup cozy knows where it came from.
We used a small piece of scotch tape underneath the cozy to keep it from sliding off the gift tag.
When I digitized this design my hope was you would use this as a service project for your group, school project, church, civic club or personal family and friends. Not sure how much each one will cost your organization to make? We have done the math for you also. We figure you can make 20 of these cup cozies with a yard of fleece that is 60 inches wide. So divide 20 into your yardage cost. If a yard of fleece cost you $10.00, each cozy is roughly .50 cents. That is just fleece cost. You will need to add stabilizer and buttons, thread etc. but that is a good place to start your cost analysis if you are doing a lot of cozies. Another place to look for cheaper fleece is your local big box store. Visit the blanket section and search for seasonal throws or blankets. Sometimes you can find real bargains that are cheaper than off the bolt.
Are you worried it will be too hard to construct the cup cozies? I got that covered for you too. Watch the instruction video below to see how easy they are to make. So are you ready to get started? Click this LINK to add the design to your cart. Check out in the store and you will get an email to download the design. I have done all the hard work for you. Now you just need to have fun sewing and donating. Did you know you can send me pictures and details of your cup cozy projects too? Visit my contact page here. That would make my day and I just might showcase your cozies on my Facebook page. I hope you have enjoyed this post, share what you learn and are generous with what you create. Someone will appreciate your hard work!
