Hate tea at sub-zero temperatures? You need a submarine tea cosy to keep the tea hot.

The submarine tea cosy is a lovely nautical tea cosy that was inspired by the sea and summer time at the seaside. Never seen a submarine at the seaside? That's because they are submerged!

This lovely submarine tea cosy is a simple torpedo shaped yellow submarine. I thought the yellow and blue colour combination make the tea cosy look summery and jolly.

On the top of the submarine there is a conning tower from with the periscope and antenna come out from. Along the submarine sides are portholes, and at the back is a blue propeller.

I thought it would be a bit of fun to add some sea life. So there is a purple octopus hitching a ride on the back of the submarine. I gave him wobbly safety eyes for a bit of a giggle.

It's a super tea cosy and its fun and cheerful. It makes you think of the seaside and marine life and as a tea cosy, it's fantastically unusual.
