Yesterday, I finally got round to making a cosy for the little teapot my cousin had given me a couple of years ago for Christmas. I love the pot, but haven't used it regularly because it's such a nuisance to wrap a tea-towel around it. And because of my almost legendary inertia when it comes to certain projects, it's taken this long to go from idly thinking, "I should make a tea-cosy for that pot," to actually buying fabric and taking measurements.

I borrowed my cousin's sewing machine, a nice portable dealie. (I don't sew enough to make it worth my while to invest in a machine.) And I sat down to do it. The process took longer than I'd thought, since I'd forgotten rather a lot about sewing since the last time I sat down at a machine, but I managed somehow. The results, alas, aren't exactly... well, symmetrical.

Slightly wonky tea-cosy

I also took the leftover fabric and made another item I'd been thinking a lot about: a slipcover for my e-reader case. The case itself protects the e-reader; the slipcover just prettier.

I'm thinking that the next one I make will have "Don't Panic" appliqued or stitched onto the front...
