vintage inspired ...

tea cosy...
This flowered material was a blouse, (i could not take a picture before i cut it) that I found at a thrift store over a decade ago. Even though it was a  little too big for me, I still bought it because I loved colours and the flowers.




While sorting out the chest of drawers recently,I came upon the blouse, and since I am not wearing it, I of thought of using the material in craft projects. The first idea came to my mind was to make a tea cosy, so I went with that....



I hand stitched everything; and am quite happy with the final result.

Lets all have tea !!!

Thank you taking your time to stop by,
