Stitch & flip Tea cosy

Hi everyone & Happy Saturday.

Had a brilliant morning snuggled under my duvet just because I could.

So once I got up I decided to make a tea cosy for a single person tea pot that I never use BUT the idea was to try out the "stitch & flip" quilting technique. So the brain cells went into overdrive, rotary cutter deployed and sewing machine called into action. 

I used some Daisy fabric 2" strips that I have had for a while. I love the combination and in the past have bought the matching fabric roll and also the matching charm pack which my bag is made from.

Now, my tea cosy isn't insulated -
 A) because I don't have any thermal wadding left and
 B) because my put only holds enough for one decent mug of tea anyway.
So it only has to keep the tea warm whilst it brews.
It is quilted with a nice 100% cotton wadding though. 

The only alteration I would make to any subsequent tea cosy would be to make it an inch or 2 shorter.
Other than that, I am happy with my little sewing venture this morning 

Hope you like it too
Thank you for stopping by my blog today x
