A cosy cuppa

A few weeks ago it occured to me that my pot of tea was going cold far sooner than I could get through it all. What I really needed was a tea cosy, and at some point in the future I will have to pull my finger out and actually make one…

(That is, once I’ve finished the three dresses, maxi skirt and umpteen alterations I currently have on the go…)

So, I set out loooking for pretties to inspire me. And these were some of my findings:

Oooh – applique pretties!

Proper 40s styling – shame I can’t knit!

Matches the blues of my kitchen, and a great way to use some of the pretty doilies I’m loathe to part with

You know I love a spot of tartan this time of year…

I’m a sucker for a hint of fairytale magic…

  1. Those are really nice. Since I drink coffee and very little tea, are the cosies a one size fits all? I tried to find the post with the picture of your teapot, but no luck. Just curious in case I find a crochet pattern!
