Flying Chicken Tea Cozy
by Callie on Thursday, September 08, 2011
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.
In the morning our chickens run out of the coop
flapping their wings
they look something like this cozy.
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!
