How to Make a Tea Cozy
A tea cozy is a must-have accessory for any tea lover. Not only does it help keep your tea warm and delicious, but it also adds a unique look to your tea table. Here’s how you can make your own tea cozy for yourself or to give as a thoughtful gift.
STEP 1: Gather Your Supplies
In order to make your tea cozy, you’ll need the following materials:
- Fabric (any fabric of your choice that is relatively thick)
- Sewing machine (optional)
STEP 2: Cut Out The Fabric
Cut two rectangles of fabric that measure the same size. The size of the rectangles will depend on the size of your teapot or teacup. You can decide how puffy or sleek you want your cozy to be. Once you’ve determined the size, use the scissors to cut out both rectangles.
STEP 3: Sew It Together
Pin the two rectangles together. Then, you’ll want to start sewing the two pieces of fabric together using either a sewing machine or by hand. You’ll want to leave a small opening so that you can add stuffing later.
STEP 4: Add The Stuffing
Once your tea cozy has been sewn together, add the stuffing material of your choice. The stuffing material should be enough to completely fill up the cozy.
STEP 5: Sew the Opening shut
Once the stuffing has been added, sew up the opening. And there you have it! You now have your own homemade tea cozy.
