Cozy hot water bottle cover

I guess I’m getting old, sigh. I’ve had ongoing back pain, and was recently diagnosed as having arthritis in my back, sigh again.

Although it’s much better now, thank goodness, I’ve spent much of the last month semi-permanently attached to a hot water bottle.

So, in the spirit of making lemonade out of lemons, I thought I needed a pretty hot water bottle cover.

I’m quite pleased with this, especially making it “from scratch” without a pattern to follow. I wanted to use some of my stash of Rowan Cotton Glace. Blue is really not a colour I work with very often, but I think this works.

Do you like the button flower? I think, if I’m not very careful, I could become ever so slightly obsessed with buttons. 🙂

  1. I love your hotwater bottle cover; it looks really cosy, and the colours and flower are very attractive! I don’t think there’s anything wrong with being obsessed with buttons – I am, and have been since I was a child. I have quite a stash of them! =D

    • Thankyou! Phew, I’m glad someone else has “button issues”. I just recently bid on a whole box of old buttons at a charity auction … no such thing as too many.

    • Thankyou, it certainly does stay warmer for longer – nearly all night in fact. Yes, I’m starting to realise that we really do need to look after our bodies. It’s not too late, hopefully!
