The Joy of Tea Cozies


Having a rough afternoon? Sometimes a touch of totally cute (and preferably somewhat frivolous) DIY is just what you need to make the day a bit brighter. Case in point: I don’t need a tea cozy, but the delight that Pip from Meet Me at Mike’s took in sharing hers makes me want to chase some of that joy with my own yarn and crochet hook!


Want to make your own tea cozy for the blatant heck of making something lovely? Pip described her project as “the world’s easiest tea cosy,” and that sounds pretty darn good to me. So, if you too are seeking some productive relaxation, I think you just might find what you’re looking for right here.
