I was commissioned to design a beach babe tea cosy. Inspired by old fashioned saucy postcards featuring fat ladies; so I designed a voluptuous beach babe wearing an itsy bitsy teenie weenie red polka dot bikini. Around the back, her has managed to catch a crab when she went into the sea, or has the crab caught her? The crab hangs on and hangs freely when the tea is poured.

She has a lovely big sun hat with matching spotty trim and a bright orange flower. The hat is removable revealing a bun in her hair.

The breach babe is made to look extra curvy with a large chest and buttocks, giving her that old school postcard look. She's perfect for any sunbather who lives near the sea or who love being on holiday.

Oh I do like to tea beside the seaside...
