Polly - get that kettle on!!
Had a sudden urge to make a tea cosy again with what is almost the last of the my Grandma's beautiful fabric. I do love the swirls of pink mixed with the yellowy gold and it will be very sad when it's all gone!! I used to make lots of tea cosies but it's been ages since I made one - really wanted to see my current fabrics together on one though, and pretty pleased with the result - Also, tried some printed labels this time, which I am much happier with.It took quite a while to make, not exactly helped by several interruptions where I was required to make 'just one little mattress' or 'two little sleeping bags, please' for Sylvanian families who have been rehoused!! As we speak, there are still two families who are currently homeless and may require sleeping bags.......have found a very quick way to make said sleeping bags so not too much tea cosy time is lost!! and I must say, the stripey mattress was so darling that I very nearly went and played with them myself!! xx
