Since trashing my 12 year old tea cosy two years ago I have been improvising ways to keep my tea hot. If I have no company I’ll just wrap a tea towel around the pot.
While cleaning my closet recently I found an extra Winter Olympics toque and scarf. Just as I was thinking the date ruled out future gift giving the tea kettle whistled and an idea formed.
The scarf became a patriotic table runner.
A couple of tidy snips on the toque seams and voila – from toque to tea cosy.
Can’t wait to have friends over to watch international winter sports competitions (or just an après ski high tea) and admire these fun, patriotic décor accessories.
