Sewing World asked me to make a Scandi inspired Tea Cosy for their October issue.
After much deliberation I broke with tradition and chose felt to best illustrate my design.
I used my trusty Essex Yarn Dyed Linen (Flax) for the background. I think the rustic linen gives a lovely foundation for the tactile felt.
I bondawebbed the shapes down (took quite a bit of heat to adhere) and then had to decide on how to applique them.
I haven’t free motion sketched on felt before so wasn’t sure if my risky decision would pay off. But I’m really pleased with the added texture it gives to the felt.
I hope you like my cute cosy, and my nod to all things Folksy!
