Made a tea cosy for my big Pentik teapot. The background fabric is linen I used for pillows sometime in my teens and after all these years, I still love the soppy romantic, Englishy fabrics with rustic motifs. As a lining there's another layer of linen, just plain white and between these fabrics I put wadding as insulation. The rose motif is something I've been working on at least sic months, because I kept losing the damn thing in my apartment and it kept popping up in most mysterious places. While embroidering it, I even spilt tea on it and now it has very authentic tea spots on it, even before it's used.
