I've been having such fun with the weekly Yarn Along, I decided to join in with Julie for her new Sewing Bee! Although I don't sew as much as I knit, I have been having fun discovering the joy of sewing, and the satisfaction of repurposing, whenever I can.
I found a great linen tea towel at the thrift store a while back, and brought it home full of joy. It was too lovely, though, to use as a tea towel, but I was determined to find a practical purpose that would still let me appreciate the embroidery and the colours and the crunchy linen. My solution was a tea cozy - I cut two elongated half circles from the towel, and two more from a red fleece I had in my fabric stash, then sewed them together, with a little red ribbon pull on top. I know I have seen something very similar to this in a sewing book, but I'm not sure where - perhaps Bend the Rules Sewing?
