Made: Jubilee Tea Cosy

Here at the Owl and Sewing Cat we are very excited about the Jubilee celebrations and every time we have a spare moment we have been turning our hands to a bit of Jubilee inspired sewing. We also have new sewing machines in store that do embroidery so we have been playing around and came up with this lovely tea cosy. Very British and just the thing at the moment (honestly, shouldn't we be drinking Pimms in the sun not cups of tea by the fire at this time of year?)

If you would like to have a go at making one of these yourself we have the kits available online to purchase. There are two options - Jubilee Teacosy kit with the embroidered wording on the side for £10.50 and without for £9.50. Each kit comes with all of the material that you need and full instructions. If you would prefer to pick your own fabrics you can also purchase the Jubilee Teacosy instructions for just £2.

We are hoping to get a Jubilee themed window done for the shop shortly. I made this bunting last night to go up. I will be sharing a quick tutorial for this on Friday so please pop back then to see how easy it is to make. It looks really effective too.

We have been trying to think of all the wonderful things that we could make if we had the time and we thought of lots of things that would be great for entertaining over the long bank holiday period. Placemats, napkins, table runners, cushions, picnic blankets, the list is endless. The big question is what will the weather be like for all of the wonderful street parties and celebrations that are planned. Fingers crossed!

For a short amount of time we have our second Limited Edition fat quarter bundle called 'London Too' available online and in store for just £14.99. Comprising of two London prints and co-ordinating solid and polka dot fabrics tied up in a Queens Guard ribbon it is a great addition to any fabric stash and the perfect thing for making bunting or other similar items.

We would love to hear what Jubilee items you would like to make, or would like to see us make. We would also like to hear what you think of our fat quarter bundles and any particular themes or colours you would like to see in future.

Happy sewing,
