Animated Tea Cosy


The platypus is one of Australia's cutest animals, and when I was asked to design an Australian theme tea cosy I thought a platypus tea cosy would look adorable.

The platypus tea cosy is mainly brown and you can see his 4 webbed feet hanging down. His head is up and alert looking around. His beak is grey and I have used safety eyes for his eyes because they help to make animals look more life like. At the back is his tail.

He's an easy to make tea cosy and looks fantastic and so unusual. I love his feet and the bill makes his face look so cute. Who wouldn't love a platypus tea cosy?

A cute platypus tea cosy - an Ozzy theme cosy for your teapot.
