    Now that the weather is getting colder again I start to drink more herbal tea (Rooibus is my favorite). I have 4 teapots all different sizes and every year I think "I should make tea cozies for these pots". That said, anyone have patterns for tea cozies they will share here? [​IMG]

    Sianara, it's easy to make tea cozies. Mine are 13" across and 9 1/2" high with a loop at the top. That's looking at one side. I use quilted fabric for the lining, making it separately so no seam show. I sew a binding on the bottom to match the loop at the top. They make great Christmas presents for tea drinkers or bazaar sale items. I've donated several over the years to a church bazaar and Humane Society bazaar. Look at one at a department store for reference. I'm sorry I am unable to post a picture of mine but I am computer illiterate when it comes to photos on this website. I will ask DH for help.

    sianara, I just sent you a photo of my cozy by picasa. I hope you receive it. I sent it to your email address. I made a cozy from the same cheerful fabric that I have on my dining chairs, so cozies can be anything that you want.

    Thank you! I did get it and responded via email. It looks very simple to make, I just couldn't picture how to put it together but your photo helps!

    Wildsky,

    Where do you buy your Rooibus? The only place I have found is a store in a local mall (which also has a website www.teavana.com). I only drink it with honey made locally myself [​IMG] .

    I found this beekeeper whose honey is so good it doesn't even taste like the "weak" honey you'd buy in the grocery store. Completely different taste. In fact I gave it to relatives for Christmas two years ago.
