I've really been dedicated to knocking out more coffee sleeves lately! I recently added a few customized versions of my Minnesota sleeve to my designs that include a little extra love over the Twin Cities.
One of my new designs is a refreshed heart sleeve. The original prototype was another custom design with blue picked for the sleeve and red picked for the heart. I decided to use a pale blue and a burgandy red to keep some tonal contrast. I loved the way the heart seemed to take over the whole piece.
My other new design is another underwater wrap sleeve: this one featuring a shark. I am in love with how it came out in the end. The blue on blue crochet gives it a great oceanic effect, and I was able to add a three dimensional element by allowing the fins to float freely in space around the cup. As always, she does have the purple eyes. I simply adore the way this one came out, and it makes me excited to keep crocheting with an underwater muse.
