thank you, yes velcro, but ribbon would look nice too

by sandralane 07 Jan 2015

Great work, I love the shape of this, and it would be easy to make to any size teapot or coffe pot cover with a little alterations.Never seen anything like this, well done. Not sure how it is held together, my suggestions a large button, ribbon, or even a crochet string. Sandra

thank you sandra, yes easy to resize and all kind of closures work, this one is with velcro north is 1 x velcro, south1 o velcro, west is 1x and east is 1o, and they meet 2 by 2, if you sew on x and o to all 4 pedals you can create a flower like shape at the top :)

by paulasandy 07 Jan 2015

This is so awesome! I love it.
Would it be possible to get the dimensions and measurements?


muflotex by muflotex 09 Jan 2015

messure the base of the pot an add roundabout 2 fingers worth of eyeball around and sketch a square in that size, fold in quarter point on point, messure the hight of the pot with also a good looking eyeball plus and sketch a pedal over the 1/4 square so you now have a shape like this (*added edit picture*) then you need 4 pieced fabric, batting and linning , embroider, sew them together, first 4 of each
velcro is placed on opposite sides,or sew in ribbon and button for closure, then the front and linning face to face with batting in between leaving an opering to turn inside out. sew outline if you wish

I have these patterns also. I have done the ones with the color on tea-towels. This stitches out so nice. You did a great job.

The redwork design has come out beautifully. Looks lovely. Sarah.

Very nice work! I love it!

by mysew1325 05 Aug 2012

this is great... love the way it is made..

by greysewist Moderator 05 Aug 2012

Great idea! You could use various methods to keep the top parts together -ribbons to tie, Velcro, even 2 side release buckle on tape or webbing if one likes to 'snap' things together. Well done & thanks for showing us!

Hallo Susanne, das sieht klasse aus. Wie hält das oben zusammen? Klettverschluss? Das wäre eine super Geschenkidee für Weihnachten :o)
Looks great. Is there velcor at the top to hold the pieces together? Will be a wonderful gift idea for christmas
Greetings, Bettina

by dino 05 Aug 2012

This one is so different and looks like it will go together fast. Thanks for the idea.

by jobaby 05 Aug 2012

We have lot of tea cozies but have never seen a tea cozy shaped like that with the bottom and sides; I like it and plan to make one or several for Christmas. Thanks for sharing.
