So a while ago my mum was telling me all about this guy at a craft sale she saw selling monster tea pot cozies. So of course that's what a made her for Christmas. Made from fleece, with felt eyes, teeth and horns, and lined with left over cotton from a quilt my mum made my niece.

On my tea pot. I made it so that it covers the whole pot instead of having the spout and handle out. You have to lift it off before pouring, but that's how my gram's cozy was and that's what I was thinking of.


Flat pic.


I pretty much just cut two half circle from the fleece and lining, add features, sewed right sides together with the horns inbetween the front and back, then attached the lining and the outside along the bottom leaving a hole for turning, turned and whip stitched to hole.

I'm totally going to make one for myself too, once Christmas is over with.

Questions, comments, tales of horror are welcome.

Glad you like him. The underbite came about when I was doodling ideas for him at work. I wanted to have big teeth, but not really fangs. I thought the underbite was somewhat less frightening.

He has a layer of denim (gotta love old jeans) between the fleece and the lining to help stiffen him up a bit and to help keep the tea hot.

Also, I owe the eye design to craftster loveandasandwich as I was totally looking at one of her posts on the Toys board while making him.

Can't wait to give him to my mum.
