A Not So Ironic Tea Cozy using the BERNINA 330



I have always wondered about tea cozies. Growing up in the south we didn't really drink a lot of hot tea. Oh we drink of fair share of iced tea but not a lot of hot tea. I finally asked a friend of mine, who has a big collection of tea cozies what the appeal was and her exact words were, "Well, they are cute." I looked at her with a blank stare and told her she had me at cute.

This project is super easy and takes no time at all!

The material used are:
1/2 yard of fabric (the finished piece is roughly 7 inches by 11 inches)
1/2 yard of decorative ribbon
1/2 yard of fusible interfacing

Place tea cozy pattern onto fabric and cut out; do the same for the interfacing. I had to fold the pattern over so it would fit on the scanner, so add about a 1/4 of an inch to this pattern.



Iron the interfacing onto the fabric and then place right sides of fabric together.

Cut a piece of your ribbon (4 inches) and pin it to the top inside of your cozy.The ribbon will be hanging on the inside of the fabric when the right sides are together.

If you wanted to, you could take ribbon for the bottom band and pin it to the inside of your tea cozy now, but I decided to wait till after I stitched everything up.

After sewing all the sides together, I used my ribbon as bias tape and created a hem. I stitched around the edge.

I had a little extra fabric left over so I made a quick coaster for my tea cup. I simply cut a square (6x6) and stitched the edges together. For the puppy in the middle,I cut out a circle and stitched it onto my square and then added a little ribbon to tie it all together.

Yahoo! I have a tea cozy and now I can have a tea party! The great thing about tea cozies is that if the party gets a little wild, you will have a tea hat-I think that's the real reason tea cozies are so popular.

SO cute!  I especially love the black and white gingham trim with the dog fabric.  I guess since dogs don't do tricks for tea there is some irony or something kind of like it.  Smiley
