How to make a Snug-Up Tea Cozy

Place this full sized pattern on the fold. Cut two of each fabric. Also cut four batting pieces a tad shorter on the top arc and if you'd like four lining pieces. For the tie, cut a full width strip 2" wide and follow the strap directions on the  Tea Cup Carrier/Tote
You can make the Snug-Up Cozy with or without lace at the top. The photo on the right shows positioning of the lace before you sew the top arc. You'll do this twice. The photo immediately below shows the finished results of your sewing. 
Sew the Tea Cozy bottom edges first. Make a "sandwich" beginning with lining on the bottom, then the batting, then the fabric for all four large pieces. Shorten the batting at the top arc to make threading the tie easier. Clip seams. Shown below, also see pictorial for Retro-Cozy
After you have sewn both bottom edges, match the center points of the seams. Pin the center point first and then finesse the fabric to the outside edge. Pix below. Sew down both side seams. Pix below.
Clip both side seams EXCEPT for one portion about 3" wide. Turn the cozy inside out and press
After you have pressed the cozy pin to hold fabric from shifting as you sew. You will make a channel at the top for your tie. The channel can be wider or narrower depending on your preference.

The bottom line of the channel will take you all around the cozy both decorating the edge and closing the hole you made to turn it inside out.
Snip loose threads. Press again and enjoy.  

Size your Snug-Up Cozies by measuring your teapot and adjusting the pattern.

     
You will have to piece the fabric tie, otherwise you will have fabric enough to make some Snug Up Tea Cozies and deduct 10% off the a Fat Stack when you mention you saw the discount on a "How to" page.
