Lettered Tea Cozy & Teabag Pouch #PatchworkPlease **GIVEAWAY**


Here we are at week 3 of the  Zakka Along 2.0 :: Patchwork Please. You can find details either in the link above or in theFlickr Group.

This week there are two projects: the Lettered Tea Cozy and the Tea Bag Pouch. I made the Lettered Tea Cozy even though I don’t use a ceramic teapot. Hopefully you will find that very pleasing at the end of this post (do you smell a giveaway?). It was quite straightforward to make, although I still find myself struggling with the author’s wording at times. I wonder if that is simply a culture thing? I have to say they aren’t so confusing that I feel I need clarification just enough to cause to me to pause & think (maybe this  is a good thing!! Hehehe). Regardless, I am enjoying myself!!!

The Tea Bag Pouch is ever so useful for me. I always have tea bags & equal in my purse. This pouch makes for a great place to keep them both. I will say that I wish the design had called for elastic instead of ribbon for the closure – ribbon doesn’t seem very sturdy. BUT again…its preference!!!

Here are my finished projects….

Well, how you would like to win my tea cozy? I did add some jumbo ric rac on the bottom instead of lace as I didn’t have any lace (and maybe it is hiding a sin or two)….

I am going to create several ways you can obtain entries to the this giveaway. The choices are yours. You can enter as many times as you want…

  1. Follow me in one of my button on the top right side of my blog or let me know you already do (7 options).

Have a great day y’all and good luck!!

  5. I don’t want to win (it gorgeous though) as I’ve made my own, I completely agree on the wording, I think I’ve read most instructions out loud to myself a few times. I’m also pinning other peoples blog posts about things they’ve made from the book for when I get to them so I can take note of their tips. I did use an elastic hairband for the closure though!
