Quilted tea cozies round up

Tea cozies are quick to make and they are great gifts for any occasion.

Here you have three different tutorials to make 3 quilted tea cozies which have been embellished in quite different ways using embroidery, felt shapes, ribbon and a matching border for the floral quilted cozy.

Small projects like these ones will allow you to improve your skills such as free motion quilting or embroidery without overwhelming you.

  3. Floral quilted cozy.
