The cleaning lady tea cosy is a fabulous tea cosy of a lady scrubbing the floor the old fashioned way with a bucket of soapy water and a scrubbing brush. None of that slapdash cleaning that Mrs Mop does, this is real floor cleaning.

The cleaning lady is down on all fours with her derriere in the air. She has rather a lot of padding on her bottom and it gives her a great shape. Because she's on her knees, her feet are sticking out behind her, and her skirt hem lightly rests on her ankles.

I have given her a 1940's looking hairstyle. I think most people these days use mops or steam mops, it was during the early 20th century when people probably last got on their knees with a scrubbing brush to clean the floor.

She is wearing pink rubber gloves to protect her hands, and she has a bucket of water and a scrubbing brush in hand. There are soap suds a plenty to clean up the grime and germs.

Despite the backbreaking work, the cleaning lady looks happy - a clean house is a happy house.

The cleaning lady tea cosy is perfect for people who need a cleaner to help them around the house. She is great fun and she a lovely project to make.

Clean the floor then time for a tea break!
