Flying Chicken Tea Cozy

Finished cozy for the new tea pot!

The spout is always ready to pour so I don't have to take the cozy off, the tail pulls through the handle so the handle is cool to the touch, and the wings are pockets that hold a few emergency tea bags. 
Flying Chicken Cozy
In the morning our chickens run out of the coop
flapping their wings
and
they look something like this cozy.
Except...
not quite so colorful.

I started with an idea. made up a pattern and just kept improvising until it was finished. These are the lining and the batting. I'm sure the cozy would work even better if I used the special hot pad batting.


It was easier for me to sew this cozy by hand because I kept making changes that would have been harder to do if I was machine sewing. Hand sewing really does allow for some tricky maneuvers. 
I like my Flying Chicken Tea Cozy.

I'm going to go pour myself a cup of tea.
Have a great day!
