The Make Do and Mend Christmas Tea Cosy
Last week, mum and I put together a Christmas tea cosy out of oddments of wool. Mum knitted the tea cosy from this pattern, and I made the decorations using this pattern. It took us a very short amount of time to make - we pretty much finished it together over lunch one afternoon. In our family we are pretty serious tea drinkers so a nice tea cosy is a lovely thing to have. For anyone who is not a serious tea drinker (or a tea drinker at all), making tea in a teapot always makes better tea. Remember to warm the teapot first with some freshly boiled water then re-boil the water to pour straight into the teapot with the teabags. Leave to steep for around 5 minutes and pop on your cute tea cosy to help keep the tea hot.
