Tea and Cakes

I’ve been meaning to make myself a teacosy for forever, and this winter seemed the perfect time. The problem was that I just couldn’t manage to find a design I liked. Until finally I came across two patterns; Good Morning Tea Cosy and a pattern for a felted tea cosy in Debbie Bliss’ ‘Home’. Although I didn’t stick to the Good Morning Tea Cosy pattern, I took my inspiration from it and I took the felting directions from Debbie Bliss (it was hard to find felting directions for British front loading washing machines and not American top loaders).

I’m so pleased with it. Although I don’t think felting went exactly to plan (lets just say it’s a good job I don’t have a large teapot), and there was an almighty stink off it for the first week (a slightly singed smell) everything has worked out brilliantly. And to top it all off I made the most ridiculously sized pom-pom for it. I had a slight miscalculation during making, but hey, its unique and super cute. It can stay for the time being.

So hurray for teacosys and lazy weekends, winter can last a little longer as long as I have my hot tea and cakes.
