Bee was on Saturday at Suzanne’s house! I did finish up my Hat Trick there by sewing down the binding.
I’m not adding label because I want to be able to use both sides of it on my table.
I love this Moda collection by Kate Spain called Honey Honey. I like all her collections… they are always in my colors!!
My dear friend Linda, who lives in Haymarket, about 5 minutes away from the new house we’re building,
took the time to go by the lot and took photos of the building progress and emailed them to me so we could watch the progression from Italy!
So, I wanted to make her something as a little thank you!
She is a tea drinker and so I made her a bee skep tea cozy!
Super fun and easy as pie! I cut strips of various widths from 7 different yellow fat quarters.
Cut the batting bigger than you want the finished size to be. Add the strips one at a time with the stich and flip method.
Repeat this process for 2 sides. I added 2 more layers of batting to make it more insulating!
I fused a door shaped black scrap on each side and blanket stitched the edges.
Trimmed it to 1/2” larger than finished desired size. Cut lining this same size.
Stitch around the shape on outside the do the same with the lining but leave a space open at the top for turning.
Then, with right sides together, align the bottom edges and stitch all around.
Turn it right sides out and push the lining into the shell and top stitch around the bottom. I added some little bee buttons and a flower on the top made with a yoyo and a button.
Done! Time for tea! With honey!!
(Oh, and Yogi wants a cookie!)
