Tea Cosy Pattern.
I have had a productive day. I completed all the articles for the craft sale on Saturday and got my first nativity set up. Today I made four receiving blankets, three pairs of slippers and one microwave bowl holder. Tomorrow, I will get everything organized; price tags, cloth for the table etc. The sale starts at nine so I will have to leave home early. I usually do all my housework on Saturday so will have to get that done tomorrow as well. Laundry is going to have to be fit in somewhere as I only like to do it during reduced hydro rate time.
This tea cosy is very easy to make. Basically, it is two 10 X 20 pieces of fabric plus batting. Sew the long sides and then sew about four inches starting at the top along one side so the sides of both ends are joined. I did this first. Make a pocket along the top edge for threading ribbon and you are done. The pattern is free on Connecting Threads: www. connectingthreads.com.
Tomorrow is another installment of the Quilting Detective on Fiction Friday.
