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! I have the tools now to make a crocheted (and most likely a knitted) tea pot cozy for any tea pot of any shape!

Ways inwhich non-bloggers have shaped and enriched my crafty life

While assembling the "thank you series", I always worry that I might leave someone out - I hope like everything I have not. So far, I have focused on the top 20 bloggers who have hugely contributed to my crafty expression during this past year. But there is one remaining group of lovely friends I am sharing today - all non-bloggers!
