yay! don't you love it when you have an idea in your head, and then when you make it up, it looks just like you hoped it would... yay!i am so happy with it, i thought i'd share it.
i wanted to make a felted tea cosy for one of my favourite tea pots, so i made up the pattern by drawing around the bottom of the pot, and then planning out the sides.
i then cut out the pieces from the sleeves of the jumper i felted last week. this pattern took a sleeve and a bit.
i hand stitched the sides to the base. i decided to leave the front open for the spout, but stitched up the back. (this pic is while i was part way through the hand sewing).
i finished it off with yellow blanket stitch around the edges and a little feature button - also yellow (i tried a number of colours and button sizes, but i liked the simple yellow best).
so there you have it, a simple felted tea cosy - to keep your tea pot warm, cosy and pretty looking...
