This Scottie dog tea cosy as well as being a practical way to keep the teapot warm is also incredibly sweet. The Scottie expression with his ears pricked and his wide eyes and his little tail stood up like a flagpole, make him a charming way to cover the teapot for any teatime. The tea cosy is made from eyelash wool to create the effect of a plush dog.
The Highland Terrier or Scottie dog is such a cute breed with their bushy eyebrows and beard. It's the Scottie's cute and charming personality that lends itself to the Scottie dog tea cosy and makes it such a heart warming addition to the tea cosy range.
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 TeaCosyFolk.co.uk
I have had a couple of patterns printed in the Simply Knitting Magazine, which is very exciting.
