Tea Cosy


My sister Carol of the blue-and-white Kaleidoscope quilt...

 
... has the same blue-and-white dinnerware I have.  In fact, she gave me a matching tea pot years before she got one for herself.


Carol emailed that if I had nothing better to do than make notebook covers for the granddaughters, I could make her a blue-and-white tea cosy for her tea pot.   I think she was teasing me but what's that old saying... be careful what you ask for...

...you just might get it!   I used Insul-Brite for the interlining and sewed together remnants from the backing of her Kaleidoscope quilt for the lining.


Never made a tea cosy before... hope she likes it!

  3. Oh! How wonderful, I do adore all things tea, and especially if it happens to be blue and white. You did a great job on your first cozy! That teapot is stunning!

  4. Very nice. I love your collection of blue fabrics. Where do you buy these fabrics? Are they a collection line? like Moda? From online shops? Just very curious. I'd like to start a blue collection.

  6. Oh, I've been wanting to make one for my teapot. One of the first things I ever knitted was a tea cosy but it was cheap, acrylic yarn and I need to update it. Thanks for the idea! Sorry, no snarky comments today. I will try to do better next post. Where do you find Insul-Brite?

  8. Lucky sister! And for someone who's never made a tea cozy before, that's an impressive turnout! (Well, actually, even if you've made a gaggle of tea cozies, it's be impressive.)

  11. As the very lucky sister who received her new lovely in the mail today, wanted to let you know that I do love it! I can't believe though that I said something to you on Sunday and on Wednesday afternoon, it had been designed, created, mailed and delivered. You are absolutely AMAZING! Many, many thanks!

  13. I wish I had a sister to make me a quilt.
    Oh well, I can make one myself.
    But it's not the same is it.
    Love your blog!
