Tea Cozies

These tea cozies go pretty quickly, but I though I'd share the few I recently made.
Bee lovers tea cozy

I use batting left over from quilting projects and for these tea cozies, fabric from my stash collection. 
Blueberry tea cozy
The hardest part of these cozies is gathering the bottom of tea cozy onto the base. The first few times I've made these, I used my sewing machine to make the gathering stitches, but I found it was easier to gather when I used a 12 weight thread and did a running stitch by hand.
Rose tea cozy
I keep all kinds of ribbons and such from gifts and fabric bundles and try to use them for things like these cozies. I thought this black ribbon would look good on this tea cozy but I think I'll be changing it out to an ivory to match the lining.

And what's a better than a tea cozy for your tea pot? A table topper to match! I'll post how I put this one together in my next post.
Card themed tea cozy
Before Christmas I made a couple with card fabric for a local bridge club - always love doing something custom for people! There may be a few more of these in the next little bit as I've been having a good time making them!
