Mrs. Bunny Rabbit Tea Cozy
Mrs. Bunny Rabbit is ready to keep your teapot warm, whilst adding a whimsical decorating touch to your kitchen or dining room. Dress her in red for Christmas, or pastel for Easter or spring/summer. The tea cozy will fit a medium teapot and is somewhat flexible in fit. This pattern is based on my 2014 design, which was turned into a pattern by popular request.
This pattern is free to download. If you appreciate my sharing it, and would like to “pay it forward” I invite you to visit my charitable donation page.
