Animated Tea Cosy


This naughty Christmas elf tea cosy has been stuffing himself full of mince pies and candy canes over Christmas and now he's fit to burst. Look, his top doesn't meet his britches anymore and his tummy is popping out!

The Stuffed Christmas Elf tea cosy was inspired by overindulgence. I think lots of us can empathise with this elf because we all have a few too many treats over the festive season.

He's a very merry elf with a bell on the end of his hat that tinkles when you pour the tea. He is knitted in a colour pallet of red, green and white that makes him look Christmassy.

In his hands he's holding a mince pie and a candy cane that he's about to devour.

Christmas is coming and so is the overindulgence bulge for this Christmas elf!
