This week I have written a series of posts breaking down the process of making a cafetiere cosy. This project was inspired by my Creative Sewing Challenge theme for June, ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’, and I’ve really enjoyed the creative journey its taken me on; from honeycomb-inspired crazy quilting, through to darting bee embellishments, and a thread-sketched bee motif to finish. If you decide to follow these tutorials to make your own cosy (tied to this or any other theme that inspires your design), please do tag me on instagram @amylovestosew to share your progress – I love to see what other people are making.
And if the Creative Sewing Challenge is something that interests you, you’d be very welcome to take part! Its open to all types of sewing and all types of sewing abilities. Simply sign up below to start receiving new prompts each month to support your sewing, and I share lots of ideas and inspiration along the way.
Part one of this tutorial focused on how to create a crazy patchwork base for the cosy – find out more here.
Part two takes you through the process of using free motion embroidery to thread sketch a motif to your cosy – step by step instructions can be found here.
And part three takes you through the final stages of assembling your cafetiere cosy – follow this stage of the tutorial here.
Have fun, enjoy your beautifully made cafetiere cosy every time you treat yourself to a fresh coffee, and don’t forget to sign up to the Creative Sewing Challenge – there is so much more creative abundance to explored by us all!
And feel free to share my pin – thank you 🙂
