  • Use 5" Mini Packets to Make Custom Beverage Covers

    Posted on Feb 23, 2012

    Enjoy your beverage in style using our festive 5” Mini Packets to make beverage covers.

    We used plain ready-made neoprene can covers* that we ordered online, which made the project quick and easy. We simply removed the stitching and laid the cover out flat.

    Sew squares to fabric cut to cover the neoprene, add trim, and sew to neoprene. Attach Velcroâ to the short ends to secure the covers around the cans (this makes them adjustable to fit different sized cans and most bottles!).

    Keep your can covers simple or embellish them with fabric paints, crystals, additional trims, etc.

    Lastly, with the cover turned inside out, sew the bottom seam together, flip the cover back out to the right side, insert your favorite canned or bottled beverage and let the party begin!

    We used the CE5INCH Celtic Mini Packet, CBF2317J - Green Garden Gate, CBF251- Lime Gelato, and CBF100A - Black to create our can covers (One half-yard piece of fabric would be enough to cover all nine can covers).



    *You can also purchase neoprene yardage at fabric and crafts stores and cut your own pattern. Our neoprene covers measured 8-½ “X 4” with two 1-½” “half moons” at the bottom, which, when sewn together, make the can cover bottom.
