Third Tea cosy finished.

I have made another tea cosy using ties. I used most of the same fabric that is in my February CQJP block, as those reds looked sensational all together. After the mess I made of the hem on the last tea cosy, I wasn't going to put binding on the hem, but the thickness of the patchwork layers makes it a bit too thick to turn in and hand sew. I just used a wider piece of fabric instead of ribbons. It is just tacked on at the moment; haven't had a chance to slip stitch it to finish.
Little teapot button on one side may be replace by something else yet; I'm planning to buy more teapot buttons to use on all my cosies, as a kind of trademark, and I don't have enough of those very pretty buttons.

Love the red colour and the patterns on this one. The teapot button makes a nice touch.
