Default teacosy

I found some upholstery material I was going to use for a little doll I'm trying to dress. I decided I would make a tea cosy instead. Its not very fancy but it serves its purpose,I just need a bigger teapot now.
I lined it with some material that is used to keep heat in,have no idea what its called,its quilted and has a shiny surface. Over that I sewed a black cotton,then the upholstery material. The braiding is a cut and ripped section of material. I made a paper template of a half circle a little larger than the teapots width and height. Cut the fabric about half an inch larger ,2 sections for each side 3 pieces in each section,sewed them individually then joined them inside out and sewed them together. Turned it right side out, pinned the braiding around the bottom and sewed that by hand. I don't think I did to bad seeing I really don't sew at all,I just needed a cosy.

Looks nice! I never knew what a teacosy was. Did you paint that teapot?

Love it CW! Great way to get rid of the odds and ends. Most of my material ends up with another idea!

Nice work Cornish Woman! Karl beat me to it, I was going to ask if you painted the teapot!

I don't know what that shiny material is either, but it really works. I have a heat glove with that inside it and it keeps the heat from my hand.

I like your cozy, and I love the teapot.

Yes I did many many years ago . I used enamel paints . It looks a bit worn now. I have a brown betty teapot now,I think its a 8 cup,that would be a tea cup. I have lots of tea drinking friends,now I can sit and chat without making endless pot of tea,that little one only holds 4 cups of tea.
