A Warm and Snuggly Teapot Sweater


Do you know the magazine Ready Made?  They also have a cool blog.  I love it!  I can check the magazine out from the library and it has the coolest projects.  I saw this idea recently, to repurpose a sweater into a tea cozy.  It was fun and easy (just scissors and hand stitching).  And it works!

Great idea and I always look for re-purposing things. Great use of an old sweater.

I love it and I have just the sweater.

Just thought - there's all those stained sweatshirts that could be doubled, with the good part on the outside... Hmmm...For that huge teapot nothing fits on. Your teapot is really pretty, too.

How clever is that! Wish I had that idea to include in my tea cozy series I did last year! It would have been a perfect addition.
