The Sweeney Todd Pie Tea Cosy knitting pattern is a Halloween theme tea cosy based on the story about the cut-throat barber.
So this fun tea cosy is in the shape of an old-fashioned pie, before the days of pie tins when pastry was moulded around a wooden pie former. It looks a bit like a modern day pork pie.
But far from being scary, this meat pie has comic appeal. In stead of trying to disguise what's inside as the villainous cut-throat barber did, this tea cosy hints at the kind of meat that was used. A couple of eyeballs are sitting next to the pie as if they were an accompaniment and if you look there's a green finger or thumb poking out from the pie. Round the back of the pie there is some blood looking gravy oozing out from the pie, it's gruesomely grim.
It's a wonderful tea cosy for Halloween, poking funny at the old horrors.
There is a help video on Youtube to help to assemble the tea cosy and to add the crimped edge - the link is included in the pattern.
The pattern will be available for digital download as soon as you have completed purchase, so you could start knitting it very soon!
This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Sweeney Todd tea cosy.
This tea cosy fits a teapot that holds up to a pint of tea - it's a small sized tea cosy.
