Don’t you just love making a gift when you know the recipient is just gonna love it!
One of my besties partner lives in America but is over this week for a visit. They went to London on Tuesday for a couple of nights – it was David’s first time there and he LOVED it!
David loves englishy things including a nice cup of tea, so I thought I’d make him a tea cosy. Inspired by Sewchet’s tea cosy tutorial I cut out a London bus from some fabric in my stash and followed her instructions.
On the back I added this writing (cos I can! and couldn’t before!):
Here it is close up:
I’m thinking now I should maybe have turned the iron on and actually used it whilst making this, but it’s too late now!
Here’s the inside……
Not sure where this fabric originated from, it’s a lovely soft cotton lawn. I think it goes perfect with the englishy theme, without being too girly!
On one of Martin’s first trips to America I made him a toiletries bag to take with him, and it had an American theme. I did blog about it here. It was one of my first posts when all this blogging business was quite new!
Do you make many gifts? I love making them but sometimes struggling parting with them!
