Animated Tea Cosy


Nurses are so amazing, they look after us and do jobs that most people couldn't, so this nurse tea cosy is celebrating all those well deserving nurses who are the tea bags in our NHS!

I based my design on vintage nursing uniforms, when the nurses wore little paper hats, fob watches and those big buckled belts.

I gave my nurse a bit of a spikey hair do, I imagine that most nurses are a bit off the wall. Besides for the work they do, short hair is nice and practical.

The nurses tea cosy is busy with her working day and she has a rather smelly bedpan to dispose of. I thought it would add a bit of humour to the tea cosy. I love the way she is holding her nose and she carries it away.

The nurse tea cosy is make with Stylecrafts new shade - Cornish Blue. It's such a lovely shade and the nurse's uniform was perfect for it.
