 Putting it all together

Handle : Roll handle up lengthwise. Put the tail through the eye of a yarn needle and starting at the top attach handle to cup and then sew  handle together all the way down to the bottom and attach near the 7th or8th row on the cup. Knot off and weave in ends.

Coffee:  Thread tail through yarn needle and just below the brim begin to sew back and forth between the coffee and the cup all the way around. Knot off and weave in ends.
