Caravans and cosies.

Looking back over my posts I thought I'd already introduced you to Daisy the Caravan and as I hadn't here she is!

She isn't in her final resting place as yet and in fact I've not done anything to her since we got her apart from taking the curtains down. She is a 4 berth although it is more for 2 people if you like to spread out a bit. There is an awning that goes with it so that will make it a bit bigger.

I did make a teacosy for when there is a teapot!
The fabric is linen, the other bits are scraps of cotton and the path is painted with various shades of grey to look like stepping stones. Wouldn't it be great if real caravans could have such fancy doors.

A washing line with brightly coloured clothing and two little daisies growing through the grass.

This other cosy was one I made a while ago now. It is made from a woolen blanket and I love the bright spotiness.....

I would love to own a spotty teapot like this.  Winter and summer tea cosies. The wooly one is quite thick but I misjudged the linen wadding so it is a bit thin.

You may remember that I said no more monkeys.......well I shouldn't have. I was given a pile of socks by dd and as they are so nice they magically turned into some little monkeys.
Here is big sister Rosie and various sizes of her brothers and sisters. They will all be going into my Etsy shop soon.

Next week I want be able to do a post as I will be away from the computer for a few days.
In the meantime here are the party links;

  1. Love the caravan tea cosy. The thought of caravans takes me back to my childhood holidays - always in the caravan (and the wet dog in the awning!)

  3. I love tea cosies... just cannot stand tea! I see no reason why you cannot customise the door... in fact the whole thing would look amazing!

  6. The tea cosies are lovely - the washing line one is my favourite. Can't beat a line of washing blowing in the wind (when it's not raining of course!). Very cute sock monkeys too. x

  15. Monkeys and tea, now I wonder what they could get up to. A bit of piano moving perhaps. The cosy is lovely, what a great design and as ever the monkeys look fantastic. Have a lovely week. Ali x

  16. Love the caravan cosy - its really lovely and would have been perfect for a really special friend who passed away recently - she was forever on the road having been bitten by a big caravan bug :-) I'm sure I've seen spotty teapots in Whittards in the past, so might be worth having a look sometime x
