I’ve been feeling very creative just lately. I think it’s a combination of long dark winter evenings, when it’s simply impossible to spend time down on the beach, and the need to have lots of exciting stock for my stall at Dartmouth by Candlelight (only 3 weeks away -eeek!!). But ideas are just tumbling out of my head …. and here’s another tutorial which would make a great Christmas gift …. the Sleepy Cat Tea Cosy. It’s really simple to make, there are only 3 varieties of stitch in the embroidery and I think the cat is irresistible.
Don’t tell Amy (one of my Newfoundland dogs) as she’d be most insulted to think she in any way resembled a CAT – but the cat’s expression was inspired by Amy’s blissful face as she snores gently in front of the fire! (She has a round body too, just like this cat!)
If you thought the Snuggle Bunny was cute – well I think the Sleepy Cat is cuter! I’d love to know what you think – it would be great if you could please take a moment to complete the fun poll at the top right hand corner of the blog.

I love that and I need a new cosy. Thanks so much, I think I am going to make one.
Love your tea cosy! Thanks so much for the tutorial. Hopefully, I'll find time during the busy holidays to make one.
Very cute. My mum would love one of these… better get started if it's to be for Christmas. Thanks for the pattern and tutorial!

I am in the middle of trying to make this cosy and I am confused about this part: "Place the cosy interior inside the exterior, right sides together." Could you please help? Thanks!
