Pair of hot mats made from vintage black & white mattress ticking, $21.00
Add to cart

I made these two black and white rustic rag rug hot pads (or trivets or hot mats) from vintage mattress ticking. People in the “olden days” reused everything and that makes sense today as well. The strips for these thick trivets were torn from the side pieces of a very old mattress cover.

Machine washable; stretch to shape and lay flat to dry. The strips were torn to give lots of fraying. I washed the trivets after they were finished. They probably won’t fray any more, but if they do & you don’t like it, the threads can be snipped off.

These thick ticking rag rug hot pads are 6.75″ in diameter.

 

Cabled-tea-cozyFour-Cup Cabled Teapot Cosy, $40.00
Add to cart

This cabled tea cosy is crocheted with red, white and grey wool yarns. The cozy fits a four-cup teapot and has a tie at the bottom of the handle, so it’s easy to use.

It’s thick and warm to help keep your tea warm to the last drop! Thoughtful gift for your tea lover family or friend. Hand wash, lay flat to dry.

Although I’m a vegan, I do re-use left over bits of yarn found in thrift stores. These yarns are examples. I feel that it honours the sheep more than treating their wool as garbage, and hope that when these things are finally past their prime they’ll be composted.

These blue and white rustic rag rug hot pads (or trivets) are made with vintage mattress ticking. The strips for these thick trivets were torn from the side pieces of a very old mattress cover. When I first moved here I bought a few old mattress covers from a shop in Port Hope.

Machine washable; stretch to shape and lay flat to dry. The strips were torn to give lots of fraying. I washed the trivets after they were finished. They probably won’t fray any more, but if they do & you don’t like it, the threads can be snipped off.

These thick ticking rag rug hot pads are 7″ in diameter.

 

Knit blue cotton tea cosyBlue Cotton Tea Cosy with Yellow and White Stripes, $35.00
Add to cart

This is a thick tea cozy knit with cotton yarn. It would fit a 6-cup teapot snugly. I have only a 4-cup teapot & the cosy is a little loose, as you can see. It has a little thingy (tuft? knobbins?) to top it off with pizzazz. This cozy just slips over the pot.

You may notice that it’s a cozy (American) or cosy (Canadian/British) – I’m trying to please everybody!
