|Blanketstitching done with Razzle and Dazzle threads|
|Hole left for stuffing|
The tea cozy was a bit more complicated to finish. Fist I blanket stitched all of the circles to the background.
I used my walking foot to machine quilt a grid of lines through the batting and lining.
I placed the wool front and back together with right sides facing the sewed along the curved edge.
I turned the outside of the placemat right side out then placed it inside of the lining (with right sides together) and pinned them together. The next step was to sew the lining and the outside together with a 1/2" seam.
Then I had to pull the whole thing right side out through the hole in the lining, I stitched that hole closed and then top stitches around the opening of the tea cozy.
Here it is - all finished!!
