I used Simplicity pattern 5068. It was very fun to make and not difficult at all. From start to finish it took less than two hours. I'll definitely be making more of these for my tea-loving friends.
This is the backside of the cozy. It's a pretty coordinating fabric in beige with pink roses. I also lined the inside with the same fabric. I ironed a thick fusible padding to the front and back pieces to insulate the cozy.
Above is a picture of the inside lining, and below a closeup of the pretty tea fabric.
Mac was invited to a friend's birthday party this weekend. His friend who happens to be an 11 year-old girl, just learned how to knit. We decided to buy her some fun knitting supplies and I also thought it would be nice to make her a knitting bag.
I found this cute pattern, Simplicity 9963, which I thought would be quick and easy to make. I've had this blue and brown paisley fabric for awhile, another Hobby Lobby find. I just fell in love with it and had to buy some even though I wasn't quite sure what to use it for. It ended up coming in very handy for this project and I love the end result. Very pretty!
