cozy time

we drink an astounding amount of tea. all kinds, all the time. we had to recently buy a new teapot (again) because our last one leaked excessively and eventually cracked and leaked even more. i had made a tea cozy for the last pot, but the new teapot is huge - as big as an elephant's skull, jamie says - so "new tea cozy" was one of the things on my to-do list.

it's just a simple cover, but nice and thick. the outer fabric is a heavy weight japanese linen cotton blend and it's lined on the inside with cotton, as well as two layers of cotton quilt batting. i meant to make a template as i went, but it was so quick and easy that the whole thing was done in about 15 minutes. now that's a satisfying, quick project.

tea time! gotta run. or walk - the tea will stay warm...

Love that you drink tea from a teapot and have a tea cozy :). I love tea and am starting to think that I need a teapot and cozy myself. Great fabric choice!
