Please select LETTER for Paper Size if this is the paper format used in your country. The pattern has been adjusted so that you are able to piece them together to get the complete pattern. However if you have the LEGAL Paper Size, you may purchase the A4 option instead as this size will accommodate the complete pattern printing.

Too hot? Too cold? Drop your favourite drink in our latest cup holder and free your hands from the extreme temperatures!

Finding the perfect cup fit to suit all cup sizes in the market is akin to Goldilocks searching for her ideal (porridge/chair/bed). Every cup has a different upper and lower circumference measurements. However, after a series of intense testing and tweaks, I have arrived at a generic (gentle arc) shape pattern (and method) that will suit most cups sizes.

In the video tutorial, I have also shared two different ways of construction - Perfect Fit and Expandable Fit. The expandable version are sewn in with small strips of elastic, which allows for some give/stretch to suit cup sizes in between.

I hope this pattern will provide some ease to users who may have difficulty handling the cups (without any holders) as well as users who just want to have some fun making/personalising their very own holders.
