There's just nothing like a cold drink on a hot summer day! While lately I've been sticking to flavored sparkling water, these reusable drink coolers are perfect for anything that comes in a can.
These custom drink sleeves are great for the pool, an outdoor party, or a summer beach vacation. They also make a fun gift on group trips!
See below for a beginner-friendly, four-step tutorial on how to embroider your own can cooler.
Supplies You'll Need:
- A foam sleeve in your favorite color
- Summer Stick & Stitch Patterns
- An embroidery needle
- Embroidery floss
Step 1: Place Your Design
First, choose your favorite design(s) - I picked three from the Summer Stick & Stitch pack! Next, peel off the backing on your Stick & Stitch design and place it on your foam sleeve.
Step 2: Stitch Your Foam Sleeve
Thread your needle and stitch your design using back stitch, satin stitch, or whichever combination of colors and stitches you'd like. No embroidery hoop is needed (yay!), but be sure not to pull your stitches too tight.
Step 3: Rinse
Once you've finished stitching, rinse your design under a faucet and lightly scrub the paper pattern with your fingers. The paper will dissolve, leaving behind only your pretty embroidery.
Step 4: Let Air Dry
Allow your custom can cooler to air dry, then get ready for the beach in style!
