How to make a Dome Shape Tea Cozy
The shape is not the key, the construction sequence is what matters. Dome type tea cozies are easy peasy. Once you know the steps you can design your own shapes and sizes. Basically two cozies sewn together at the bottom. 

This dome cozy begins with a pattern shape that is 14" wide by almost 12" tall. I've rounded the edges. You can begin with this size or larger or smaller.


I've cut 2 face fabric pieces, inside fabric pieces and 4 batting pieces and lining pieces. I've made stacks: lining, batting, face up, face down, batting, lining.

Pin and then sew around the edges of each stack. Make seams of the "inside" cozy shape slightly larger so that it will nest inside easily. Snip seams on both.

I decided to put a simple edge detail on this cozy. Choosing do this by a small or larger detail will decrease the inside width of the cozy and may or may not limit your teapot choices.

If you choose to do this you will also need to adjust the "inside" cozy piece seam. You may find this to be a trial and error exercise. 

Pin and press flat before you tuck in the bottom edge and sew. 


As you can see from this photo, the two pieces have been put together. I've sewn the bottom edge with a decorative stitch. However, you may choose to use lace, a contrasting fabric or even old fashioned bias tape for a retro look.

The tea cozy stands nicely. That's one of the reasons I like to use lining in my stacks. You don't have to use muslin. You can use a scrap fabric.

The second reason is that it adds to the layers of keeping the tea warm.

Prevent the heat from your teapot sinking into the table - use a trivet of some kind.
