I got this amazing printed fabric from the most recent round of the fabric printing swap, from leapfeetfirst and I needed a new tea cosy. I am a complete tea addict and own about 4 cosies, but I bought a new, bigger, teapot and I needed to make something fast and cheerful to wake me out of todays slump-I had the whole day planned for craft and did feck all..but this is cheery.

Tea-cosies that you have to lift off to pour the tea are a pain in the ass, I like the ones with the spout free...this one wasn't really measured, I held the fabric to the pot and sewed away (it is padded with an old bedspread that has a polyester lining between two layers of cotton) ..I added a couple of buttons to make it even happier.





this is how I will be pouring out tea in about ten minutes...

I love personal swaps, for supplies, surprises, flamingo themed things and general silliness.

Would love some hand knitted socks for my big foot boyfriend.

To be honest abbeyroad, It was the easiest thing to make....

it is basically a pouch with a gap on one side for the spout. This design with the enclosed handle is really good if you have a pot where the handle gets too hot.

love how you showed off the printed design...and still got a wonderful cosy!

There is nothing more relaxing than a hot cup of tea...lovely job...and the idea of making a spout hole would not have occurred to me...but of course, it makes perfect sense not to have to remove the cosy!
