Hot Water Bottle Love


At this time of year
 Patchwork House turns into a hot water bottle production line!
 Oh these little bottles of colour have proved to be
 sooooo popular!

red 
yellow
 pink
 green
 orange
cream
 or
 blue 


I make them with stripes
in pretty bright colours


man colours


rainbows


and traditional granny squares


in girly colours


bright colours


pastels


deep colours


all with coordinating buttons


flowers are popular too


but my new favourite is this


narrow stripes
with many colours and stitches
inspired by the 
as we go stripey blanket!

I'm always being asked for the pattern but sadly it's still in my head!
There is a task for another day to write it up . . .
 maybe when I've had enough of making them Ill sell the pattern!

Well keep warm my dears!
February is nearly half way through . . .
I do hope you are enjoying the lighter days.

School closes on Valentines Day
 for our much needed half term holiday
 and I am looking forward to being Mrs Patchwork Heart
 for a whole week!

See you then!

Love your big variety of water bottles and lovely patterns. Wish we could find water bottles so easily here in the USA, as I have been looking for one for quite some time now. They remind me of my childhood, when I had to sleep in my grandma's cold bedroom and all that kept you warm, was one of those water bottles. What a clever idea to give them a sweater and keep us warm even more.
Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful and creative week!

Loving the lovely different colours of bottles.
Whereabouts do you get them from?

Hot water bottles can be bought in supermarkets and pharmacies also on ebay or amazon but they are expensive! I source them from local bargain stores but they are hard to find!

They all look so pretty but I like the pastel one best. Enjoy your half term, it's our wedding anniversary that week too so we'll all go to Pizza Express for lunch - yes all the children will come as well!! Enjoy, Sam xx

Heather they are beautiful! My favourite is the pastel granny square it popped straight out to me, but I love the idea of the new striped one. It's difficult to make for men and boys but your 'manly' hotties are a great idea xx

Wow - I had no idea hot water bottles came in any colour other than red! You just may have found yourself another revenue source:)
Love the crochet covers, I don't think I could decide on just one. I would like to make the stripey blanket but was at a loss as to what colours to use. I really like the colour-way you chose for the bottle size version.
Have a lovely, crafty break!

Ohh, I love these and your whole blog is such stunning eye candy! I am a bit jealous of your photography skill, but on the bright side they inspire me to keep practising.
