Animated Tea Cosy


There are so many television shows about antiques; Bargain Hunt, Antiques Roadshow, Cash in the Attic, Antiques Road Trip, and of course Dickinson's Real Deal. It seems like we are a nation of antique lovers.

This tea cosy is tribute to antique dealers, antique lovers and avid antique program watchers everywhere!

The main cosy part of this tea cosy is an old antique chest of drawers, Rococo in style I think. It has Queen Anne legs and brass drawer knobs. On the top of the drawers is an old mantel clock.

There is an antique dealer stood next to the drawers and he's thinking about the value of the antiques. I don't know if you recognise him, but I took inspiration from the famous antique dealers that we see on the telly. He's thinking closely about the value and rubbing his chin because he wants to make sure that the valuation is the real deal on the day.

What he might not have spotted is a little woodworm peeking out the back of the furniture, now that's bound to effect the price.

It's a lovely tea cosy and great fun to make. It's doubly insulated with two layers of knitting on most of the main cosy. It looks fantastic too, you would hardly tell it was a tea cosy at all.
