ITH CAN COSIES by Faye - Faye's Threads
Christmas stocking filler, a personalised birthday gift, party favours, unique designs? A plethora of situations and events to use this design.
The Can Cosies are designed to be made in a 6x10” hoop (or larger). They are made almost entirely in the hoop with only a small amount of hand sewing to close the final seam. The design is made to fit the standard 375ml beverage can with 211mm or 8.3” circumference.
Finished Size: 3.75 x 9.5”
**Please note, there is a typo in the cutting size on the directions - cut batting/neoprene to 3.5 inch (we'll update instructions asap)
Included in the designs are the following options -
- 6 designs with words
- Blank design for you to add your own personal touch
Fabric Choice: I trialled these using both cotton and denim. Denim was slightly thicker, but the result was great. The design is NOT suitable for stretch fabric or vinyl. I did try vinyl but was not happy with the results.
Batting: I tested several types and combinations of batting and concluded that the best two are -
- One layer of Legacy L-FF78F1 Flex Foam Stabilizer and one layer of InsulBrite. I placed the InsulBrite closest to the can for insulation and moisture proofing.
