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!
