Several years, ago I (Lilo) shared with you the idea (here) of using an old UFO to create a new and functional tea cozy for my glass teapot. Well, recently I acquired an entire set of Blue Willow dishes that included not only the original coffee pot, but...the teapot as well! I was in heaven. I have long had a love affair with blue-and-white dishes (read more here). Now comes my dilemma. The old tea cozy doesn't fit this new, and may I say, more refined teapot. What is this self-confessed tea drinker to do? I want to make a new cozy, but I don't want it to scream "white-gloves-and-hat ladies." I need your advice: what type of cozy should this "new" pot be wearing? Should I continue with the blue-and-white theme...or should I make something a little more "edgy?" I'm open to all suggestions; however, the cozy needs to be washable, as spills do occasionally happen.
