Keep It Hot! - Tea Cosy
This first photo show one side of the tea cosy before it was stitched. As you can see, I used lots of colour, decorative yarns and wool roving on a cotton base. This was topped with navy tulle and then stitched over with different shades of rayon threads. The threads matched the yarns. Once that was done, using Sulky Sliver Opalescence thread, I stitched over or outlined certain parts.
Here is the completed piece. Each side is quite different. One thing I've noticed: the Sulky Sliver threads don't glitter in the photo. When the light hits the threads, the piece really sparkles!!
