Red velvet cupcake tea cosy

I don’t like tea.

What I do have a soft spot for is people who drink tea, like my friend Jerusha who recently tied the knot. Jerusha introduced me to the wonder of red velvet cupcakes, so I thought it would be fitting to knit her a red velvet cupcake tea cosy as something warm, fun, and unique for her new home.

Charlie the hatching penguin!

This adorable penguin – which can be customised into any bird of any colour – is fun for little fingers and completely safe, with embroidered features. The little penguin hatches out of a knitted egg and is, if I say so myself, completely adorable. You can buy him here for R95, free shipping! If you want him to be a different bird entirely, that’s fine. Just let me know.

Why do the easy thing and buy it when you can do the fun thing and make it?
