I really enjoyed doing this alot. I loved working with the different colours and yarn textures.
It was a teapot cosy!!!
A close up of a couple of the flowers, I sewed a pearl bead in one type and a crystal in the other.
The top flower:
This is my favourite flower. It's made of a chenille type yarn and feels so velvety and nice.
The lid flaps open:
Of course, me being me, the cosy is a little (ok, A LOT) too tight. It probably would have been better looser. Getting it on was no mean feat! I do wonder if I should have undone it all and redone the sides of the cosy, but I was SO keen to get to the flowers, I just squeezed the tea pot in regardless! (oops).
I got the cosy pattern from HERE
Doesn't her teapot look gorgeous! I just hunted round the internet for flowers and then added a few bits. The yellow one is actually two different flowers and I just put them together.
I do love my teapot, squashed as it is!
