Altering household objects
A few days ago I was in the Avoca shop in Rathcoole and spotted a beautiful teapot. It was covered in a button design on a beige ceramic background. Well, there were two things wrong with it; it could only hold about 2 small cups of tea and the price - nearly €35! So, I got thinking, bought a €8 teapot a few days later and custom made a button tea cosy for it. The cosy is crocheted and has about 150 buttons sewn on to it. That was the boring bit. The teapot has made several lots of tea since. It dosent dribble and I have already got an order for another pot plus cosy.
