Vintage Cottage Teacosy

I made all the bits for this ages ago, but held off sewing them up as there was a lot of work involved.  The motivation to finish was provided by the gift of a pile of vintage knitting patterns and a new book!  So I gave this away as a present ... but it was very difficult ...

  10. It's not my pattern unfortunately - I'm at the moment completing City and Guilds Module 7 where I've designed my very first pattern. You can find all the details for this one on my Ravelry page (see link on rights side bar) Thanks very much!
