A handmade teacosy adds a special touch to any teatime, whether indoors or outdoors. If you don’t feel confident about making up your own teacosy, send it to us. Here’s what we do…
After stretching the canvas, we make up each teacosy with a two different cotton fabrics.
We use a furnishing weight, ‘linen look’ cotton fabric for the backing, the border around the outer curved edge, and along the bottom, and for the hanging loop. We line each teacosy with a coordinating or contrast fabric, and add wadding between the layers.
