The Make Do and Mend Christmas Tea Cosy

by - 13:08

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.

    *PS* How interesting that you saw an almost (if not) identical cinnabar style vintage bracelet in pink. Ooooh, now I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for one, online and off, as pink is my very favourite colour. Thank you for sharing that with me, sweet gal.
