Tea Cozy for Heather

IMG_3010

My friend Heather and I did a craft swap this year.  She made me these amazing fingerless gloves, because my hands get cold when I hand stitch or use the computer.  This isn’t a great photo – they are a fabulous purple color.

I made her this tea cozy.  I used a pattern and tutorial from Sew4Home.  Heather has a red, black & white kitchen.  There is a pocket behind the teapot appliqué.  I found the sweetest crocheted trim to edge it with.

IMG_3194I didn’t have enough trim to do the back, so I used a decorative stitch on my machine to add hearts along the seams.

This came together very easily, and it only took me a few hours.  Of course, I over-purchased fabric for it, so now I have a bunch of red and white prints to add to the stash.  I’m ready for a Valentine’s day project.

It took me a bit longer than I had planned to get to this project.  Sorry, Heather.  I fear sewing things that aren’t flat.  I just have a hard time wrapping my mind around the 3-D stuff, so it takes me forever to get to them.

Do you have any long-term projects you are putting off finishing?  What are you waiting for?  Getting rid of those nagging voices in my head feels so good.

One thought on “Tea Cozy for Heather

  1. Wonderful gift for a friend. I have many….one is a Petal Play project of a loon. I am waiting to be with the project for more than 2 days at a time, its at our “retirement” house. You have inspired me to peek at it as it is on my UFO list this year (carry over from last year)
