New on AIM member, Janet Granger's website this week is a matching set of an ‘Elephant' teacosy kit, with a tray cloth kit echoing the pattern of the rug on the elephant's back. If you love novelty teacosies, then you'll love this set! They are both quick to stitch, and easy to assemble.
Both kits are to be stitched in needlepoint on 32 count silk gauze. The teacosy kit contains stranded cotton, a generous piece of silk gauze, clear instructions and stitch diagrams, a suitable needle and a colour block chart to count the design from. The tray cloth kit contains all of the above, plus mahogany components to make the tea tray, which simply need gluing together.
Various designs of teapots and tea sets are also available to complement all the teacosies that she has in her range (see the 'Teacosies' page of her shop, and scroll to the bottom).
The kits are available from Janet's website here:
The teacosy kits are £12.95 each, and the tray cloth kits are £10.95 each.
If you haven’t stitched in this scale before, or you would like to know what is involved in making one of these kits, visit the FREE ONLINE TUTORIALS page to see how easy they are at;
