Today I made a few Tea Cosies
and would like to show you how I made them.
This is a nice project to use up your scraps
of lace and doilies.
The small cosies are 30 cm. wide and 28 cm. high, but that
can be adjusted to the size of your teapot.
I used cotton material for the front and back
and stitched wading to the backside of the material.
At this stage you can decorate and add the lace to the front
and if you like, to the back.
This ready made wading I used for the inside,
cut the same size as the top material.
Pin the outer panels together facing the good sides.
Do the same with the wading with the good sides facing,
like on the picture below.
In this order stitch all four panels together.
This is the way it should look after stitching all four together.
Open the layer and turn over with the good side out.
Now pin the layers together and zigzag them.
I added gathered lace on the edge and finished it of
with bias tape.
I used some of my vintage doilies.
Here I added an extra strip of material
to make a pocket to store a few bags of tea.
Here is my latest indulgence....
I drink a lot of coffee, did I mention my Mum is Dutch..
In Holland they drink lots of koffie.
