How to Make a Tea Cozy

Photo: Sloan Howard

The delicious perfection of hot tea lingers with a snug cover or "cozy" for your teapot. It fits over the teapot to keep the heat inside.

Alex Sudalnik demonstrates in this article from Quick Stuff to Sew, Vol. 4, how you can make this simple cover by cutting fabric and batting layers, and then quilting them together. You will learn how to finish the edges with bias binding, as well as three options for closing the cozies.

A cozy takes less than an hour to finish. Play with colorful fabrics and embellishments to come up with different styles. Your teapot can stay a lot warmer, and look beautiful, once it has a wardrobe.
