Lucky me, I had Mistress Jeannie in the recent return to hogwarts swap. She is very cool and very nice and I wanted to make something special. Plus she has an awesome pinterest board, so I was very inspired.

I decided, in a moment of insanity to make a teacosy in the shape of the sorting hat from harry potter. There were many occasions for profanity. I did an extensive search and found nothing at all like this online, so I was on my own.

To make it I cut a random oval shape out of brown felt, using some wadding at the back, I stitched and gathered, needle sculpting the face, to give the brow ridge and nose. Once I had the face done the rest was pretty easy. I cut shapes to turn the front half into the triangular shape, with folds to cover the seam, ditto the back.

padded it well and lined it with some brown cotton, after adding a brim.







I left openings for the spout and the handle, so you can pour the tea without taking off the hat.

It has to be admitted that I really love the way it turned out and it was hard to let it go. It was pretty time consuming, but totally worth it!

Tea cosies are the best. I always use them nothing like lingering over a huge pot of tea on a wet day
