## Video: How To Sew A "coat" For A Teapot?

Dear hostesses! All of you love to pamper your loved ones with delicious aromatic tea. So that it brews well and does not cool for a long time, you have to wrap the teapot in a towel. It is not very convenient and ugly. Therefore, I suggest that you sew this "coat" for the teapot. It will not only help to keep warm, but also give a beautiful look and cheer up.

## Instructions

### Step 1

The first step is to make patterns. There will be two of them.

From the beginning we measure the "teapot waist". To do this, you need to measure the circumference of the widest place at the teapot. Now the obtained value must be divided by the number Pi, that is, by 3, 14 is the diameter of the circle of the "kettle's waist". We put this segment on graph paper and draw a circle. The first pattern is ready.

### Step 2

The second pattern is "coat flaps".

To draw it, remember the circumference of the widest place at the teapot and divide it in half and add 5 cm. Set aside a segment of equal size on graph paper - this is the bottom of the "coat floor". Now we measure the height of the kettle, including all the bends. We set aside the resulting value perpendicular to the existing segment on each side. Reduce the top by 5 cm on each side. Connect the lines by rounding the upper corners as shown in the picture. From the upper edge of the "floor" we retreat down another 5 cm - this is the place where the elastic is attached. Here is the second pattern.

### Step 3

The patterns should be cut. Then we pin the pattern to the fabric using pins. We need to cut 2 round pieces for the bottom of the "coat" and 4 pieces for the "floor". We cut them off by adding 0.5 - 1 cm to the pattern for a seam. You can use zigzag scissors so that the edges of the fabric do not crumble.

Now we cut out one round piece from thick cardboard. This will be the bottom of the "coat" and the teapot stand. Therefore, do not use corrugated cardboard. It breaks down and deteriorates quickly.

It remains to cut two details for insulation "coat floor" from padding polyester.

### Step 4

Let's start assembling our "coat". Having folded two round parts with the wrong side inward, we sew in a circle, stepping back from the edge of 0.5 - 1 cm. Having finished sewing to the middle, insert a cardboard blank inside and sew to the end.

### Step 5

Decorate one of the pieces with embroidery, beads, or buttons before sewing on the "coat hem". Then, having folded two parts with the right side out and inserting a synthetic winterizer between them, sew the parts along the edge, stepping back 0.5 - 1 cm on each side. Trim all edges with a bias tape except for the bottom edge.

### Step 6

Sew the first floor to the bottom of the coat. Then sew the second "floor" with an overlap of the first by 5 cm on each side. Treat the bottom with a bias tape. Close the elastic into a ring with a diameter of 5-7 cm, decorate it with lace and sew on the desired place.
