One of my favorite things to do in the spring is to go for a walk with my camera and a big latte. This does require some awkward juggling because the camera takes two hands, but I always seem to make it work. I’ve been admiring my coffee cup sleeve a lot lately on my walks. It matches the spring scenery nicely. I thought I’d share the pattern so you can make your own sleeve and have a bit of spring.
