“STATE-LINE CRAFTER’S”

10553491_10204035864970031_5661830124427492192_n    Hello everyone, it’s Connie! I have been BUZZZZZY as a bee! I am a tea drinker and I would like to share with you one of my projects that I just got done!

Tea Cozy for Hot Tea

 I attended a Tea party with my Aunt Junie, last year.  The hostess of our table had a tea pot I’d never seen before, it was an Insulated Metal covered Teapot with cork stopper, love it!!   Of course I had to have one! With the insulator it keeps your tea hotter longer, that’s awesome.   I priced them online,brand new they were $100….

 

A month later I found 
this one at a garage sale, $5

Yes it has cracks in            

 the porcelain, but it does
 not leak. Even with the
 insulator on the pot, I
 would like my tea even hotter.
 

Looking in my Mother’s cupboards, I came across one of her tea cozy’s, it almost fit my pot perfectly except it need to be longer at the top.

I traced it for the pattern, and made my own.

Here’s the steps:

Cut 2 fabric for sides and cut 1 for bottom. Cut 2 lining and cut 1 for bottom.

Sew Velcro on both sides of top of each side piece of lining.

Sew 1/4″ seam up each side around the top, leaving bottom open.

Cut 2 foam for sides and cut 1 for bottom. Cut 2 batting for sides and cut 1 for bottom. Cut 2 heat bond for sides and cut 1 for bottom.
