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).
