My daughter, Taj will be going to college soon and she has a little place
already picked out just for her. I want my gifts to her to be useful and
artistic at the same time. I want them to be something she will enjoy.
I decided for Valentine’s Day I would make her a Tea cup Cozy.
(It will be a little late getting to her, she will not mind…slow cloth.)
so, yesterday I finally stitched the roses to the tea cup cozy…
and almost finished the butterfly…he needs antennae.
This is an angel holding a lamp…
I want her to know that angels are watching over her, lighting her way C:
The angel is stitched to a “secret pocket” that will not be seen by anyone but Taj.
I thought I would go ahead and take a picture before I piece the whole cozy
together. I will put a secret message inside, just for her.
I have taken a piece of heavy muslin and stitched around it with
some little stitches, I will write a message with a sharpie, permanent pen.
Carefully, fold it and hide it in the pocket. shhh!
the whole secret pocket panel…

have a great day!
