Description

I found this 70’s fabric with wood-anemones on a brown base, originally a narrow curtain. I loved it! First I intended to make a miniskirt out of it, but it was kind of too much for me (I’m a big fan of simplicity) and never happened. So finally I designed this tea-cosy where the patterned material is framed by a very dark-blue, lightweight denim. I figured that way the fabric would last as long as possible… (in all ways).
The inside is lined with a thick wool-flannel, probably intended for winter coats, and it works perfectly. The teapot remains warm for hours. Frequently used these days (I’m at home with the flu).

    Charming and beautifully crafted. A delightful way to enjoy your vintage fabric for years. I’m sorry you have the flu, but am glad you’re at least strong enough to do a little sewing! (I drink tea every day, and I’m crazy about the accessories. Even in my coffee-crazed world, and I love coffee too, I was somehow raised drinking hot tea even as a kid back in 1960’s rural California. But I never had a proper tea-cosy until two months ago when a friend and her English beau brought me one from England. Now you’ve inspired me to make one myself:)
