Christmas Tea Cosy and Tea station

I have seen lots of lovely tea/coffee stations around blogland
and redid mine for Christmas
I thought a nice Christmas tea cosy would be appropriate.

I used a piece of wool blanketing I had on hand
and embroidered it freehand with some holly 
and writing

I thought this pretty floral cotton would look nice as the lining

I placed the lining right sides together with the embroidered piece
then placed a piece of wadding over this

Machine stitched around the edges leaving a small opening for turning

Turn right side out and invisible stitch the opening closed
Fold in half and add ribbon ties at the side.

Tea/Coffee station
Everything on hand

Then I made some Chocolate fudge for gifting to friends
I think it's nice to take something sweet with a bottle of wine
when invited to Christmas lunches.
I'll cut it into little squares and package it up nicely

I'll add a ribbon and note and I think we're done

Have a lovely decorating, baking week

Your new tea cozy is so pretty! It really makes your tea/coffee station look first class! And I'm certain that your friends will enjoy the treats you made. I will start my baking after my first child arrives home... this weekend. :-)

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! I am so glad as it has brought me to your fabulous blog!
I have a tea "station" too, but never thought of it that way...I like that idea. I think I will fix up my "tea station" today : )
Your new tea cozy is lovely! You do very nice work! I love the material you used as well as your pattern.
Happy Holidays!

Terri said...

My mistake! I was just going through your blog and realized I saw your tulle tree a couple weeks ago? That is I think how I found you. As I went to become a follower I realized I was already one! Lol!

Hi Jeanetteann,
That fudge sure looks good! Your tea cozy is very pretty. I have one which a bloggy friend made and sent to me a couple of years ago. It is in my coffee station too covering a favourite little teapot. Thanks for sharing and coming to my HOME. Have a lovely week, my friend.

Christmas blessings,

You're just so crafty! I am going to remember that sewing tip and try making one for myself! Love the hand stitching you did...a real sweet teacozy!
Thank you so much for joining us for Pearls and Lace Thursday!

Beautiful tea cosy and I love your tea station - it makes me want a cup of tea right now :) I made a hot cocoa station in my kitchen and my 4 1/2 year old son is loving it :) I think I might have to add some cookies to it as well.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Your tea cozy is sweet. I can't believe you did that freehand! (Well of course I believe you, because you are so talented). I would have needed a pattern.

I love my coffee/tea station. It is so handy to have everything in one place.

Have a blessed and wonderful Christmas!
