Tea cosy for Jessica finally sent to her!!

I was in a tea cozy swap at MJF and I got my friend, Jess, as a partner. She has 8 kids, so I thought I would make her a cozy of the old woman who lived in a shoe.
I took pictures from her blog and copied them onto fabric and put them in windows I made for the house. She just got chickens and a dog, so I put chicken fabric cutouts on the shoe and put her actual dog behind the red house.

The tea bag is the poem of the little old woman who lived in a shoe. There is a family photo on the back of the tea bag.

I used my embroidery machine to make the designs all over the shoe. That was a lot of fun.

Here is one side of the tea cozy. It was fun to make it since I knew so much about the person getting it.
