I decided to finish the tea cosy rather than start a new one. It's not what I pictured, but I've been looking at it for so long I can't decide if it's too odd. The striped background is meant as a salute to the tenth Doctor Who's pinstriped suit. The roses are meant to bring to mind the person I though was his favorite companion, Rose. I tried to design the body so it would fit teapots of varying sizes.
If my partner doesn't like it, I hope she'll at least appreciate the effort. Now I've got to come up with some goodies to send along that might take the edge off in case she doesn't.
