Cosy Tea


I don't own a teacosy, something which clearly must be put to rights. This teacosy is a gift for a friend and will accompany one of those little teapots that sit over the cup. He is a devoted tea drinker and always makes tea in the pot rather than the cup. In my eagerness to make the thing I went ahead without having bought the teapot/cup, I have my fingers crossed......

I really want to try out some alternative teacosy designs now that I have the bug, probably the beginnings of a new obsession.

Expect more teacosies soon.

Oh, this is so sweet and lovely, the colours so happy and nice. I especially love the way you did the appliquee, cute! I am absolutely thrilled by its charm.

That is so adorable. You are very talented. I long to be able to sew, but I think I'm much better suited for knitting.
Your teacosy is absolutely darling. Every teapot certainly deserves one of those pretties.

Your tea-drinking friend is going to love his cozy. I'm wondering what you lined it with. It's very pretty.I have become a morning tea person lately, I open the school now at 7 a.m. for the children who arrive early. Don't ask me how early I get up in order to do this. When I get to school I make myself a cup of tea, and a bowl of porridge in the microwave. I know that's the wrong way to make porridge. But it tastes good.

Oh my, that's so pretty. I got a sewing machine for Christmas but it's at the house in Wales which means I haven't been able to practice much. If I get good enough, I think I'll be asking where you got the pattern. x
It's so sweet, perfectly good reason to put the cosy before the cup-pot!

A very charming cosy! I'm sure it will be appreciated. I always make tea in a pot as well, even just for myself. This is because I use my own porcelain mugs and if I constantly poured boiling water directly into them they would crack. A good tip for those who like to use homemade pottery.

Adorable. Reminds me that I need a tea cosy too - only it will have to be a felted one as I haven't your sewing skills.

What a pretty teacosy - When I grew up and learn to sew I will try to make one for my robust and chunky Denby teapot - it desperately needs one as the tea cools done very quickly!

I love it! I feel inspired to have a go at something with cakes on!How are you stoping your cake fabrics from fraying when they are washed? Did you bondaweb them first?

It's very cute - lucky friend ! I keep meaning to try the one that was on Knitty a while back but never get round to it .... too many projects, too little time ! :0)

Are those little pockets? I heard an idea for putting sweet smelling herbs in teacosy pockets so that they released their scent when warm!
Yours is delightful!
