Teapot Cozy, First Try

Merry Christmas!

**************************

 

Well, here’s what I came up with on my first crack at making a teapot cozy without a pattern.  I think it turned out pretty well, although I didn’t have the exact color of yarn I wanted.  I wanted the base to be more of an off-white color.  This was a little darker yarn (tan) by Vanna that I had in my stash.  I’m not completely satisfied with it, but it’s not bad.

I think I need a few more leaves maybe.  I worked on this thing for 12 hours yesterday!  It took me forever.  I finally finished up just before 3 AM.  I did write down the instructions for the base.  I’ll be posting it as a freebie if anyone is interested.

  4. I think it is just right. As a matter of fact I really like it as I find many of the patterns out there look a bit sloppy and too large. Your hard work paid off in spades. Thanks Pammy Sue. Hope you had a wonderful day!

  6. Well, I think you should be VERY happy with it. Great job and it's very very pretty. I like the color you chose for the base. It's such a nice contrast to the teapot itself.

  18. Sweet. Really getting bored down here. Cold and rain and this hotel computer is junk. Maybe, I can make the rounds over at the MILs while they are watching the Bears. If I can get her off the Slots that we installed yesterday.

    I really want to give this a try when I get back home.
