Adding a little style to Starbucks

I am very much inspired by the various blogs I've found devoted to all things craft related, though most of the projects make me think 'I could never do that'. However while perusing the lovely site of Meridian Ariel I found her tutorial for a Knitted Java Jacket. Very simple, you can see for yourself here and I decided to decorate it with some fabulous buttons from Incy Wincy Stitches - if you aren't familiar with her, check it out here. I of course now realise that Apryl did exactly the same thing!

The first attempt has been given to a colleague as a thank-you for lending me her sewing machine - I suspect this will give rise to many blog posts as I get to grips with it - while the second is going to my lovely friend Lucy.

Cup 1 - complete with cup button.

Cup 2 - with a little owlish knowledge!

Cheeky owl close up!

A big thank you to Incy Wincy for my buttons and Meridian Ariel for coming up with the idea in the first place - I only hope I can do the same for other bloggers some day!


  1. I am very impressed! Well done my love :D

  2. Cute little cosies!
    I didn't want to reply on your PIF blog as I might stop someone else leaving a comment (Hope that makes sense?) Any way thanks for popping over to my blog and joining in the giving. Please could you send me your address to -
