for the perfect cup of tea...
I drink tea many times a day [more when I am at home] yet, I don't have a single cozy to keep my tea pot warm. So, after all these years I took the time to make one special tea cosy. By the time I was done there were three of them;
Here they are;
This is to all the ladies who work so hard in the tea plantations to pick the finest leaves for the perfect cup.
I used a piece of tea dyed cloth and did a bit back stitching and applique for a the sketch I did. I also had to find and match pieces from the bag of remnants.
This one is for all the hard labour that is put in to sorting and packing.
I unpicked and used this bag that came as a part of the packing Also included few used tea bags in the pattern. What about washing it? These bags will get ripped :( ok, I will hand wash carefully.
Lastly, over a cup of tea! This one, I will give to a friend.
The stitching did not turn out as neatly as I wanted.
Thank you for stopping by for a cup of tea, and I hope you enjoyed !!
Until next time,
