To keep the shape of your teapot after you sew on your handle and spout then firmly stuff your teapot and sew the tea pot lid on top of your tea pot.

Tea Pot Handle
Rd1: ch15. (15)
Rd2: sc in second ch from hook and remaining ch’s. (14)
Rd3-4: ch1, turn, sc across. (14)
Now fold the piece in half long ways and use the tail to sew it closed. Then sew the handle to the tea pot.

Cookies
All of the cookies are the same size. So I make two cookie pieces and decorate the top
This way you do not see the ugly side of all your stitches and you get a chunky cookie too!

Chocolate Chip Cookie (Make 2)
Rd1: 6sc in magic ring. (6)
Rd2: 2sc in each st around. (12)
Rd3: *sc, 2sc in next st* repeat from * 5 more
Take brown yarn and sew chips on one cookie half. Then sew one half with chips and a plain half together. Make sure you put the cookie half with the chips right side up so you can see your chocolate chips. Sew in any stray ends.

Sugar Cookie
With light brown or tan coloured yarn make one cookie.
Rd1-3: Work same as Chocolate Chip Cookie noted above.
Now for the icing. Take the colour of icing you would like to use, I prefer to use light pinks and blues.
Rd1-2: Work same as Chocolate Chip Cookie, Fo
Now take any colour yarn you like and add sprinkles to the icing only. Or even beads would be cute as well. Now take the
icing and sew it on to your main cookie piece. Weave in any ends.

Oreo Cookie
With dark brown yarn make two cookies.
Rd1-3: Work same as Chocolate Chip Cookie.
With white yarn make one cookie.
Rd1-3: Work same as Chocolate Chip Cookie.
Now sandwich the cookies together with the white piece in the middle.Use a long tail from a cookie half and sew all the way around the cookie


Tea Bag
Rd1: ch 5 (5)
Rd2: sc in second ch from hook, sc across in the remaining ch’s. (4)
Rd3-8: ch1, turn, scin the 4 remaining ch’s across. (4)
Now you fold the tea bag in half and use black or grey yarn and embroider the word “tea” on one side. Now keep the piece folded and either sc around the entire piece closed. Or fo, and sew around the entire piece. Make sure the neat and proper side that you embroidered is on the outside. Now cut a string of white yarn and loop it thru a st in the top and tie a knot. And trim the end.

Spoon
Rd2: 6sc in magic ring. (6)
Rd2: 2sc in each st around. (12)
Rd3-4: sc around. Fo and weave in ends. (12)

Now it is time to make the handle for the spoon.
Rd1: ch 10. (10)
Rd3: sc in second ch from hook and remaining ch’s. (9)
Rd4-5: ch1, turn, sc across. Fo and leave a long tail. (9)
Now you fold the piece in half long ways. And use the long tail to sew the piece closed. Now sew the handle to the spoon, fo and weave in any ends.

    1. Hello Hannah!

      Oh yes for sure, that is all I use now. I have made a few tea sets with satin yarn but I don't like the finish as much on them...the fraying really bothers me :) So all I use to make tea sets now is worsted weight acryclic yarns :)

    1. Hello,

      No I don't stuff the teapot. But you could then I would just make a flat circle the size of the opening and sew it closed :)

    1. Hello,

      I hope you enjoy the pattern. And here is how you invdec...

      Insert hook into the front loop of your next st, then insert your hook again into the front loop of the following stitch (so you are doing this twice, with no yarning over), yo, draw through two loops, yo, and draw through remaining loops on your hook.

      I hope this helps :)
