This is what I started with:
|Bits of cut-out fabric (on my spotty ironing board)|
I added some wadding and put it all together to make this:
|Funky Cafetiere Cosy!|
A cafetiere cosy has been on my Craft To Do list since last year. I first planned to crochet one, then I thought I'd make one out of felt, then I decided to use fabric. (So fickle!) Well, after thinking about it for months, I have finally made it!
I sewed the spotty fabric to the top and bottom of the flowery fabric to make the front of the cosy - I love the two fabrics together. There is wadding in the middle, and the back of the cosy is made from the spotty fabric. I also used that to make the two button fasteners, and I covered two self-cover buttons with it to make some matching buttons! I'm very pleased with the end result!
Although, heaven forbid a drop of coffee gets on it, after my hard work!!!
Once I finished the cosy, I got showered and dressed, and went out for a delicious afternoon tea with some friends (thanks to some discount vouchers!) Now that is the life! Tea and cake in a luxurious setting! That's the kind of life I should be living every day!! ;o)
