oh, poor watcher. did your life pass before your eyes? cuppa tea, cuppa tea, almost got shagged, cuppa tea?

I started making this cross stitch around 1st of may (when else?) & now that it was finished, I wanted to use it for something suitable. & what's better than a tea cozy? I've never made one before, but with a little help from the internet & my cousin who provided some of the material, it actually turned out pretty nice. I won't show you the inside of it now though, 'cause there you can really see that sewing isn't my line of business...

The plan is to also line it with some of that red satin ribbon. But after three broken sewing machine needles I felt that my patience was running out, so I'm saving that for some other day.

You wanna make your own tea cozy? Here's a tutorial in swedish & here's one in english. & here you have the pattern I used, I made it from one of the stencils at Radical Graphics.

While you're at it, take a look at this girls crafty blog, I really found it inspiring for today's project.
