The bingo tea cosy is such great fun with her big hair do and big glasses. Knitted in lovely bright colours, she is jolly and cheerful.

She has her arm raised, waving her bingo card in the air - I think she has a full house.

I love her hands and fingers, they look oversized and really add to her character.

There are retro style bingo balls bouncing around everywhere. The balls are great for stash busting, just choose brightly coloured yarn. The bingo numbers are embroidered on, so you could add any numbers you like - your favourite numbers, lucky numbers, or even winning lotto numbers. The numbers I chose were... Number 3 cup of tea, two fat ladies - 88, tickety boo - 62, 22 - two little ducks, Dirty Gurty number 30, and 83 time for tea - because there is always time for more tea.

Her top is knitted in a Puff stitch, that gives that lovely appearance to her jumper. There is a help video for this stitch.

She's perfect for people who love to play bingo. Please drink hot tea responsibly!
