I have made a cozy for this challenge, I'm sure of that ... but where has it gone? I can't find it in my living room ... can't be true, i worked a half day on that d***ed cozy ...

Do you see my cozy? It's so messy in here  Embarrassed





You found it?   Shocked  Where is it?

Aah!  Wink There it is!



It`s a TV-Cozy, camouflaged as a TV. Great idea, right?  Grin It even has a button to turn it on or off!



I did the TV test pattern in patchwork, unfortunately the colors do not really match a real TV test pattern ... i haven't had that assortment of greys and blacks in my fabric stash.
Here you can get an impression of a real test pattern. Yes, i know ... I've turned a part of the test pattern on the wrong side Embarrassed Noticed that, when it was already to late.

The inner fabrics are patchwork fabric or simple cotton (the black fabric), the outer fabrics are/is (?) linen, which i dyed myself some time ago.



The white lines are quilted, stupidly i can't get the orange marker out of the white fabric.  Sad


The characters are quilted, too. The word in the middle of the test pattern says "Sendepause", that means send pause or intermission in English.



For the borders and the backmost (?) parts i have chosen a brown batik fabric to simulate a (fake) wooden TV frame.

So, this is my cozy. I hope you like it!

More and bigger pictures of my camouflaged TV-Cozy
There are no thumbnails of the pictures, but the big pictures are there ... i am sure of that  Wink

@Glamis
Teils, teils ... ich wollte mich eigentlich ziemlich ans Original halten, hatte aber viele Stoffe nicht in den passenden Tnen und da hab ich dann improvisiert.

Inspiration without application is moot.

This is great! You get to 'kill' your TV while still keeping it around!
