Dress up your teapot with an adorable pug tea cosy! No one will be able to resist sharing a cup of tea with this cutie. The tea cosy is a quick knit in two main pieces, front & back, which are then seamed along the sides, leaving gaps for the teapot handle and spout. The ears are knit separately in contrasting yarn, so that they can be positioned, along with the button eyes & tail, to your liking to give your pug a unique character. Five pompoms are used to create the finishing touch – four paws & a black snout. The best part is that this pug will loyally sit and keep your tea warm for hours. Should your pug get dirty, the acrylic yarn is machine washable and dryable, although washing inside out on a delicate setting is recommended.
