Dessine-moi un mouton


One of my beloved aunts needed a tea cosy, and I volunteered to make her one. And off I went, and under my arm was her sloppy and a little sad tea cosy for reference and guide.


It was my first tea cosy experience, so to speak, so the edges got a little uneven. Therefore – to best secure the warmth of the tea, the cosy needs a little punch for full coverage;) The result, shown above, reminds me of the shape drawn by the pilot in ‘The little Prince’ It was the only shape that the little prince was happy with, for inside he imagined there would be a sheep (mouton) I enjoy the thought of the ‘hat’ covering my aunt’s tea pot on her breakfast table, wonky as it may be – punched and all.


I loved stitching big with embroidery threads. Hope to do so again soon. Oh, yes for there’s my tea pot. It looks like it is in need of some warmth too!

A big thank you to everyone for stopping by and for taking the precious time to leave me lovely words. Blogging is wonderful!

Take care.

Very pretty, and the big quilting stitches make it look even cozier. I haven't thought about The Little Prince for a long time...I think this might be a good time to read it again.

Your cozy is lovely! I am a knitter, and I must say I envy the quilted cozy. My knit cozy doesn't keep my tea warm for long. You have such an admirable talent. I am so glad I found your blog.

I love the big stitches on the tea cosy. I'm very fond of doing them too. It looks wonderful.
