The full page advertisement from a vintage Australia Home Journal of the fifties.Now sit back and I hope you enjoy the pics!
Here are some of the tea pots and tea cosies in the collection.
Tea cosy with "half doll" (these dolls are also found on some pincushions).
This tea cosy is a popular pattern.
The vintage blue and orange tea cosy is a Madame Wiegel pattern.
The cottage tea cosy is a favourite and the crocheted tea cosy with pansies was made by me.
Another Madame Weigel tea cosy pattern. This is a daffodil stitch pattern and the directions for making this one will be in the link at the bottom of the page.
A vintage crocheted tea cosy which is not completed, tea bag holder, sugar spoons, and jam spoons, and tea leaf scoops.Well, I hope you enjoyed this little lot. There is heaps more but that will have to wait for another time......I have so many things packed in boxes at the moment (currently painting the house).....and it does make it somewhat awkward trying to do a blog......!!
Here are a list of patterns for tea cosies -
Rosy Cosy crocheted tea cosy
Cabled tea cosy (knitted)
Daffodil Stitch tea cosy (knitted)
Cathy's tea cosy (knitted)
Okay, who's for a second cuppa!
