Add some fun to tea time with a jolly tea cosy. This one is themed as a Victorian flower girl. If you’ve made toys before, you’ll find this project a breeze – the head and arms are stuffed then attached to a voluminous dress, which is the part that fits over the teapot. If you’re not used to making toys or other stuffed items, this is a great project to practise on as only a few parts are stuffed.

The Victorian Flower Girl tea cosy is a well dress Victorian style girl with a basket of roses. She has ringlets in her hair and is wearing a ruffled lined bonnet that is decorated with daisies.

She is a very cute cosy, with billowing petticoats and scalloped edges dress. She can be knitted in any colour to suit your mood or home decor.

There is a very small amount of cabling on the handle of the basket, but this could be omitted if you preferred.

Downton Abbey fans will love this Victorian style tea cosy.
