My Cozy New Cottage Tea Cosy

A few weeks ago I went to the Penelton Woolen Mill outlet store and got some really great chartruse wool from their by-the-pound bin.  I tried felting it, and along with some other wool that I dyed and felted, I made this cottage-shaped tea cosy for my biggest teapot.  I used lace for the curtains and velvet ribbon for the half-timbering.  The shutters move so it looks like they open and close.  Now all I need is the perfect bead for a doorknob.  I’m really pleased with the way it turned out, and it definitely keeps my tea warm!
