Patterned Coffee Sleeves

These past few weeks at work have kept me incredibly busy, so I haven't been able to do many projects. But this weekend I made time to rest, which I desperately needed, and I did a few small crafts. For a little while now I have been planning to launch an Etsy shop, and reusable coffee sleeves are one of several things I hope to sell. So as a preview to some of the designs I'm working on, I made these two sleeves.
As much as I thought the backs turned out like patterns in themselves, I decided to line the insides of the sleeves in order to prevent the embroidery from unravelling.
Now all I want to do is work on more patterns and color combinations, but it's back to grading and lesson planning. Hopefully next weekend I will get a chance to return to these.
