How to make a tea cosy

Craft Idea for Home Decor – make a teacosy from teabags

 Tea Cosy

tea cosy (American English: tea cozy) or tea warmer is a cover for a teapot,[1] traditionally made of cloth. It insulates a teapot, keeping the contents warm. Their use predates the invention of vacuum bottles as a means of keeping hot liquids hot. Tea cosies may have padded inserts that can be removed and washed.

Some tea cosies are hand-knitted, resembling woollen hats, some even feature a bobble on top, which may also serve as a handle to remove or lift the tea cosy. Sometimes, if the tea is served in a restaurant or in a hotel, the teapot is covered with a tea cosy that has a metal exterior to protect the inner fabric of the cosy from wear and tear and also to further improve the insulation of the teapot. A special tea cosy is the so-called tea lugger, which enables the hot teapot to be carried around easily.
