There are lots of owl tea cosies to choose from – but this owl is a little bit different … I wanted to make him with more of a “proper” bird shape, so he doesn’t cover the handle and spout of your pot, but ties on at the sides instead. I used ties as I wanted him to be an easy make for beginners, but if you preferred you could always substitute the ties with a button and elastic loop. Once he’s on, then he can remain in place until our pot needs refilling so isn’t too fiddly in use.
Measurements are to fit my small 2 cup teapot and my owl measures 7 ½” across his base and is 9” tall (approx), but he would be very easy to resize. You can also adjust the size using the ties at the sides.
