Reversible Holiday Teapot Cozy

Tea-lovers are arguably the best people around. They always know the hottest cafés in town. They’re always down to treat you to a scrumptious new drink, whether it be morning, noon, or night. Best of all, they’re lovers of the simple pleasures in life: the warmth of a freshly brewed teapot glowing into their palms and the aromatic steam of cozy chamomile wafting into the air.

Even though I adore my caffeinated and/or zen tea-drinker friends, there’s one conundrum that always stumps me: What on Earth do I get them for the holidays? I’ve gone for all of the obvious targets, from antique teacups to explorer sets of tea bags. However, I don’t want to bore them with the same old go-tos that everyone who hears about their connoisseur status gets.

So what’s a crafty gal to do?

Worry no more! The next time I have to get a gift for one of my epicure besties, I have my gift idea at the ready: a Reversible Tea Pot Cozy. This gift is a cinch to make, and because it’s handmade, you can be sure that it has all the warmth of a cup of tea sewn into its seams. Your tea-lover won’t be able to stop thanking you for this adorable craft!
