I made this for my Auntie in 2008 http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=273768.0
I moved mid-project and misplaced the pieces, ack! So I started over and after I'd given the completed project to her I found the original bits. I have had them in my UFOs since then, eight long years, lol. I finally finished it for myself today and very glad I did, I love it.







It's lined with a layer of fleece to keep the teapot warm then another layer of this really cute fabric one of my kids picked out. The curtains are fussy cut from this too.

Very, very cute!  I love all of the tiny little details...the door handle and number, and the little bead flower centers.  Way to go finishing a UFO!

Very cute! It makes me think of all the flowers and plants on your front porch.

Well that's easy enough, it's always on the teapot when I come downstairs in the morning. My sweetie makes us tea every day before he leaves for work Smiley.


I can get an action shot of the one I made for my Aunt this Easter too.
