I love chinoiserie style, and with this year being the Year of the Dragon, I thought I'd take the opportunity to create a Chinese dragon tea cosy.

The main part of the tea cosy is very plain, the whole focus of this tea cosy is the dragon. The black of the main cosy makes the colours of the dragon pop.

The Chinese dragon is long and serpent like and snakes around the teapot. He has a feathery, flame like tip to his tail and a yellow ridge down his spine.

His head is very detailed, with open jaws, moustache, eyebrows, antlers and big eyes, he certainly brings the essence of the Chinese dragon to teatimes.
