Whenever I watch Tv, I try to do something else as well otherwise I feel like a lazy Lounge Lizard. Sometimes I fold washing from the basket, or peel potatoes for a recipe I’m making or I crochet.
I wanted to make a tea cosy for my teapot. It’s not just for decoration; it keeps the teapot warm so the tea stays hot for a lot longer. I didn’t have a pattern for my good Ecology teapot, so I tried different things, measured a lot, undid a lot more, till I came to a style that I liked. I didn’t want to mess round sewing buttons on, so I made a long tag, that can be used for a flower leaf, to tuck into the stitching holes.
