How To Make A Wonder(ful) Cuppa Coffee To Go

Lazies, It never ceases to amaze me what you do with my designs. Lish Seem (one of our Yahoo Lazies)¬†shares her ‘Wonder Cuppa’ in our next ‘Show Us Your Lazy’ project feature.

Lish’s ‘Wonder Cuppa’, ready for immediate gifting and sipping.

Here’s Lish:
On Wednesday, while relaxing in my chair…my brain jumped awake and said “I know what we can make for L and J’s birthdays next week”!!!

My body tried to totally ignore the brain… but you know how persistent they can be sometimes…so I proceeded to listen.

My brain suddenly remembered the Moda coffee fabric that was quietly sitting in my stash.

Lotta Latte Coffee Beans Brown 19124 16 Moda #1

My brain decided that the Wonder Wallet, made from that fabric could easily become an emergency coffee kit for my coffee-drinking friends!!

Hmmmmmmm so the ‘Wonder Cuppa’ was born!

The Wonder Cuppa was born. You can’t make just one!

The emergency coffee kit is a Wonder Wallet made using Lazy Girl Designs’ pattern (LGD211), loaded with coffee goodies. The kit consist of: a Folgers coffee bag, a tea bag, an individual creamer packet, a sugar packet, a substitute sweetener packet, a stir stick and a napkin.

Coffee anyone?

The coffee bag is a single serve dippitinhotwater thingy and they are actually pretty good. The kit could very easily be adapted to a tea drinker by changing the fabric to some of that cute teacup stuff. I just love Wonder Wallets!!!

For variations on this theme, I think medical fabric would make a nice little first aid kit. Perfect for a purse or glove compartment or even a little ones’ back pack.

I also thought about making one out of barbecue fabric and putting in catsup, salt, pepper, maybe some mustard packets so you have what you need when you are eating on the run. Oh man!

These things are just so darn cute! I made three. One for each of the girls for a present and one for the Christmas box…. remember that?? Only 21 weekends left til Christmas! I also updated the blog and photo site with new stuff too. It’s been a good, productive weekend….hopefully the next week will be too!

    Lish I just love the idea of the coffee kits, all of us with that addiction need that in our purses and desks and bedrooms and cars……. The W/W is perfect for all sorts of things like you suggested, my Mom has one I made her with breast cancer ribbons on it for all her medical cards & i made my Dad one for his list of medicines and his VA card so they can keep them separate from there usual wallets. Love the coffee fabric my brain is stirring pardon the pun!

    I love the Wonder Wallet! I walk with a cane, so carrying a purse is tough. I’m able to carry a WW in my pocket with everything I need. I also got the brilliant idea that the WW would make a great personal first aid kit for my son–who is a boy scout. I used red fabric, and it is the perfect size to hold a piece of moleskin (for foot issues), a couple of band aids, a packet of antibiotic ointment, and the coin pocket holds a couple of ibuprofen or allergy pills perfectly–after they’ve been wrapped in aluminum foil. It fits in his pocket and he can carry it everywhere. I made one for each of the boys in his boy scout troop–and their parents. It’s come in handy on more than one occasion. Thanks for the WW! It’s great!
