At the beginning of December I shared some vague quilting shots. All of those presents have now been given out and (hopefully!) are being used by all of the lucky recipients.
These are SIX sets of the Quilted Tea Cozy from Purl Bee, with pot holders.
As soon as I saw the tutorial I knew I needed a quilted tea cozy! So I went to JoAnn and got all the materials I needed. I had never quilted before, so I followed the directions to a T. It was really fun! I queued up a ton of episodes of The Office and just powered through it. After I made my quilt sandwich and cut out the pieces for the tea cozy I had a lot of quilt sandwich left that I didn’t want to waste, so I cut out three squares that I could easily turn into matching pot holders. Fun right?!
I loved mine so much that I just knew that a lot of ladies in my life would love a set, too, so I went back to the store and went crazy buying material and matching quilt binding and thread. It took me a good week to finish all the sewing. There is even some hand sewing in there! It was a PAIN to make six sets of these bad boys. But so lovely! I hope my gifted sets are getting as much use as mine has been!
My second favorite set has to be the one I gave to my mom! This fabric I found at an estate sale in Portland. It’s got a special place in my heart, and I’m so glad it is now a tea cozy! Found fabric is fun that way, isn’t it?Pin It
