Animated Tea Cosy


I was asked to knit and design a Boris Johnson tea cosy. Once I had thought that I'd have to knit him in a suit, with a blue tie and wind swept looking hair, I had to put my thinking cap on for how to make it look like Boris Johnson himself.

I thought about his time in office and what would probably be remembered in years to come and I think without a shadow of a doubt it will be the pandemic that he will be remembered for. So I thought I'd design a BoJo giving Covid the heave-ho.

So the cosy has a man in a suit, with a blue neck tie and ruffled hair, and in one hand he is holding a PPE facemask, and the other hand is giving us the thumbs up. Whilst about his feet are a couple of corona viruses with red protein spikes.

I think it really encompasses the message of 'in it together to beat the virus'. I think Boris Johnson looks quite a lot like the prime minister and its a fun tea cosy.

We have a pot, we have a plan, drink hot tea, if you can!
