Its Only a Model

I came up with this crazy idea to make Geek inspired Coffee Cozies AKA Coffee Sleeves.  My first thought was to make a Jayne Hat one.  This is the working pro-type...

Its on a pretty small cup so I need to make it wider and the ear flaps are TINY in comparison to the stretched sleeve.  I've got some plans for the improvements and will work on them soon.  I've got 2 other Geek ideas as well.. I think I'm going to perfect this one first and then move onto the others, even though I think they might be easier!!! But its a learning process and its fun to try to create something without a specific pattern in place!

(notice how the top picture the flash didn't wash everything out - WHY can it do it sometimes and not every time? crazy cameras and my inability to work them!)


  1. I LOVE IT!!! So cute!!! I'm excited to see the other ones too.

    My camera does the same thing. I can't figure out how to change the flash setting. I want to be able to choose when it flashes and when it doesn't. I could read the book, but I'm too lazy. I just usually take a bunch of pictures and work with whichever one came out the best. :) I love to mess around with them on Picasa just to try to make them more clear, too. Still not quite ready for GIMP.

  2. The tiny flaps are sooo cute!!!!!
