Hodgepodge Patchwork Tuesday --- Tea Pot Cozy

 
My daughter asked me if I would make her a quilted tea pot cozy.


She likes owl fabric and I love blues!  Perfect!


I quilted the fabric on my long arm quilting machine with a small meandering and added my name and the year. I searched and found the instructions on how to make a tea pot cozy. (link at the end of this post). I somewhat followed the instructions with a few changes of my own.  I used their measurements and that worked out perfectly.


I added a larger loop on the top, so it would fit over a big cupboard knob.


When I quilted the fabric for the cozy the strip of fabric was longer than I needed for the cozy, so I made a little hot pad for the tea pot. I used 80/20 cotton/poly Hobbs batting. I could have used 100% cotton or even a heat resistant batting.


 While I was making my tea cozy, I hummed --- "tea for two and two for tea...."


If I were a tea drinker,  I would love this quilted tea cozy and hot pad.  I am sure my daughter will love it.

Enjoy your day!

I really like your tea cozy. I finally got a "real" tea pot, for Christmas I was using an Mason jar to steep my tea leaves in the hot water =P
