The weather here in Melbourne is starting to get a little cooler, the skies a little gloomier as we move closer to winter. Nothing better than curling up with a good book and a hot cup of tea. I bought these Denby teapots last year and get a lot of enjoyment out of them. I looked around for ages wondering what sort of tea cosies I could dress them with. I debated knitting some cosies, but I am a fairly lazy knitter and most of the patterns seemed too complicated. I didn't want to buy a cosy, as I thought there has to be something I can make.
Eventually, after trolling through pages and pages of googled websites, I found a picture of a quilted cosy. The blue and white jugs fabric I had in my stash (a few years old, I can't even remember where it came from), came in very handy. Some blue check on the inside, cotton wadding in the middle, some simple straight quilting lines and a navy binding was all it took. Very quick and easy, done in an afternoon.
Now I can enjoy a cup of tea, knowing that my second cup of tea will be just as hot as the first!
On another note, I'm very excited...I just found out I won a giveaway from the beautiful Linen and Raspberry blog! When it arrives, I will show you all what I have won. Thank you Jean.
