Two Embroidered
Tea Cozy Designs

The following embroidered tea cozy designs were from the South Kensington School and published in Harper’s Bazar (yes, that is how they spelled it), in 1888.

The two cozies, Figs. 1, above, and 2, below, are both remarkably pretty, and though in black and white and they appear to be very similar, they would appear quite different if the illustrations were in color. Fig. 1 is of olive green velveteen, with the design solidly worked with shaded cream colored crewels, the stamens alone being raised by means of French knots. A working pattern of this tea cozy design can be found near the bottom of this page.

Fig. 2 is of cream-colored Roman satin, and has the design embroidered in shades of blue and green filoselle, with an outline of gold thread. 

This working pattern of Fig. 1 can be resized for any size cozy you may wish to make.
