Garden of Daisies
gave away last week,
I decided to try making one of my own.
I've made ONE before from quilted placemats
but this was the first time I started completely from scratch.
I lined it with both Warm & Natural cotton quilt batting
and put some Thinsulate on the bottom as well as the sides
but not up into the scallops.
It worked GREAT & kept my tea warm enough
to enjoy two cups while sitting on the porch...
enjoying all the summer flowers!
Thank you, sweet sewing friend, Jerry, for my delightful
book on "Afternoon Tea"!
Does she know me, or what??!!
I learned that Marilyn at
sells tea cozies that are similar to the ones Gayle made.
She also sells a pattern, which would have made my job SEW much easier!
I recommend visiting her tea shop, Marmalady's.
I hope to make more of these little treasures,
as I think they'd make great gifts for all my
tea loving friends.
I'm going to link up with Marty at
for her Tabletop Tuesday,
since this IS on top of a table!
Thank you for visiting The Gazebo House.
