Draw Winner and a To Small Tea Cozy.
The winner of the Nuno Felt Bracelet Kit is Kate Whyte, Congratulations.
I am holding a tea cozy class in February. I know how to make a basic tea cozy but thought I would try some different shapes for different tea pots. This is one to a little oriental tea pot.
Here is the template I made. You can see that I traced the teapot and then added to that. The plan was to cut the handle section out and use it to fold over the lid and hold with a button and make a hole for the spout.
Here it is ready for its rub and roll
and this was after a little rolling with the resist out.
You can see it hasn’t shrunk much but it just barely fits the teapot. I drastically underestimated how fat my little tea post is. I did not allow nearly enough room to go around it and have shrinkage. I didn’t measure, I was being lazy and paid for it. Oh well live and learn. I have some other tea cozies partially made. We will see how I did with them when they are done.
