Bobbi Lewin Teaches Me To Crochet Tea Pot Cozies to Fit My Oddly Shaped Tea Pots!

Completed Tea Pot Cozy!

I am so excited to share my first ever tea cozy I can't stand waiting another minute!

Seriously, this project has been the most rewarding project I have engaged in so far this year. That is primarily because I literally learned to make a tea pot cozy without a pattern; and the experience left me feeling empowered!
