Tea and Cupcakes, Anyone?

I have a dear friend who is crazy about tea, so when I got serious about crochet, I promised to make her a tea cosy. Recently Cupcake (the same designer who created the fan bookmark) published a new design for a popcorn style Tea Cosy. I love it and decided that I had to make it.

It was really fun! I've never done anything using popcorn stitch before, and I enjoyed it, and love the texture it gives the piece. For this cosy and hot pad I used Lion Brand Cotton in three shades. I think it's cheery, and I'm sure my friend will like it. Sadly, I don't have the right size and shape tea pot to model it properly, but my friend assures me that she does.

If you want to make this cosy and/or hot pad, you can purchase the pattern here for $3. And if you do, check out some of her other patterns - she creates some wonderful designs!!!

OMG!!! Your friend who's crazy about tea is also crazy about her new tea cozy. I love it! I love you, too.

P.S. - my favourite tea pot will look lovely in her new coat!

Either you really like it or you've been hitting the Fosters! LOL! Thank you, Cupcake! I really loved making it. It's a wonderful pattern!

Delia, I just went to cupcake's blog, and her things are just wonderful! The cute platypuses make me want to learn to crochet, and I would make an entire family of koalas just for the Four Horsemen- she is really talented. I'm glad you posted her link.
