It's a stretch

My latest knitting creation is an extremely improvised coffee cup cozy. Made from scrap yarns, with a crochet border along the bottom. As you can see, it's not exactly the best fit. And those are some ugly buttons.

I also tried embroidery. Without a hoop. The result was this pouch. My try at the backstitch. I clearly need more practice. I embroidered half of the sentence before it occurred to me that I can separate the embroidery threads. I also failed to trim the thread on the wrong side before adding fusible interfacing. Go me!
The pouch was sewed by hand, and still need some sort of lining.
