The VE Day Winston Churchill Tea Cosy is a brilliant tea cosy that looks like Winston Churchill - Winnie put the kettle on!
The VE day tea cosy has Mr Winston Churchill displaying the victory sign whilst trying not to get raveled up in a string of patriotic bunting.
Winston Churchill was a large, old man and always wore a jacket and waistcoat. He was often photographed with a cigar and his homburg hat.
So the tea cosy include all these things that we associate with Winston Churchill, the suit, the dickie bow, the homburg, the cigar and I have tried to accentuate this bulk and given him a larger head.
Because it's VE day he is getting ready for a street party, and many people did to mark VE day. Churchill is helping hang out some Red, White and Blue bunting, but he does seem to be getting a bit tangled up in it. The bunting is wrapped all around the back of him.
It's a sweet and nostalgic tea cosy and the blue bow tie and the bunting bring a bit of colour to the composition.
The Churchill tea cosy fits a medium sized tea pot that covers a Teapot that holds 6 to 8 cups or 2 pints.
The pattern will be available for digital download as soon as you have completed purchase, so you could start knitting him very soon!
This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Churchill tea cosy.
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.
