There's nothing more comforting than a cup of tea with friends... I love a good tea party... and how much fun to create your own tea cozy! Well I did just that!
HI, I'm Kim... I am the Merchandising Manager for Knit Picks, sister company to Connecting Threads... I wanted to drop in and tell you of my latest sewing experience... I fell in love with the "Sip of Summer"
fabric line!!! - the colors are so bright and cheerful! and I couldn't resist the tea cozy and hot pad in the "Turning Strips & Squares into Table Sets"
book. The colors in the book are very pastel, but as you can see, bright colors can also be so much fun!!! (later on I'm planning to make the table runner too!)
This project was very simple and quick... the tea cozy is basically two large pot holders held together with braided cording...
this works perfect since most tea pots are not created equal... the adjustable tea cozy is the perfect solution! and I used complimentary linings so that the whole set ties together...
Since the "Sip of Summer"
fabric line has a wonderful assortment of bright "happy" colors, I can see myself making several different versions that will all tie together for my big high tea that I have every year....
Have you ever held a tea party? I do it once a year, the last Sunday of the year - kind of a thank you to my friends... Sandwiches, scones and little deserts... oh, and lots of tea... everyone will love it!! (you can do it for 2 or like me, for 16) I love to change the theme... Sip of Summer
is the next theme!!! It will warm things up and bring a bit of summer to the monotone colors of winter... what fun!!!
