British Bulldog tea cosy

The challenge of designing the bulldog was his wrinkles, he has a few on the back of his neck and some more on his face.

The face has a nice expression with a snaggletooth showing, more wrinkles on his eyelids, and his floppy ears are very endearing. He also have cute paws with claws and round the back a tail.

A sitting bulldog is the perfect shape for a tea cosy because they are round and stocky, like a teapot.

The tea cosy can be knitted to any colour to look like your pet.

The British bulldog tea cosy is the cutest way to keep your teapot hot bulldog style.

I design and knit unique tea cosies. I really love designing exciting and unusual tea cosies, its great fun and people don’t mind having an over the top tea cosy. Plus they are a great talking point at tea time and make for brilliant knitting projects.

I have quite a following with regular customers who regularly buy my latest designs from my website

I have had a couple of patterns printed in the Simply Knitting Magazine, which is very exciting.
