Despite the wind and rain myself and my friend Eimear had a great day at the Sage and Stone Farmers Market (we'll be there again end of July). In preparation for a sunny day I brought sun cream, but it proceeded to rain and the wind was a rail pain to be honest, but I still managed to get sun burnt on the top of my forehead (ouch!).
I got my first custom order (through a market) and it was for a large cafetiere cosy. A friend of ours kindly lent me their large Bodum and I proceeded to make the cosy.
I used Robert Kaufman's Cafe Metro Vintage. I find it a very elegant print and ok not coffee pots but it's very popular with my customers.
I lightly quilted around the teapot and a couple of cups. Then I used some gorgeous shimmering blue seed beads which were exactly the same colour as the blue petals on the teapot and I sewed them on.
I had one final look to see if there was anything else I could bead and found I could sneak in two more seed beads!
I also received in the post this week some insulated batting for making oven gloves, pot holders and so on so I am going to use that for my next cosy and of course using the same fabric!
Have a good day everyone!
