Finished tea cosy

I don't have a teapot the size of Mina's, so I am holding a spout up to show where the spout would naturally come out, with my fingers substituting for the handle.

Hey, great teapot inside ;-) !
Would like to make one, but I have a double-walled teapot (if that's what you call it ...)

Never seen a better one. Your teapot will be more than pleased.

Wonderful! My mom has a ceramic cozy from thailand. Not sure how that works but this is lovely and since I make tea almost every morning ... maybe in the new year I will make a cozy. Is the lining terry?

CV- the lining is some vintage 30's material. See the previous post for how I lined it- Since there are holes for the spout and handle, you do need to turn the seams in on the two pieces before sewing them together, so they are two discrete halves- that said, you could stuff them full before sealing them up if you like. I figure it's like double-paned glass, and the layering itself is doing the insulating.
