Easy Peasy Tea Lights


Looking for a cute, simple pattern for tea light covers? You’ve found it!

Strangely enough, this pattern originated in the supermarket. I was attempting to find all the ingredients I needed to make the delicious HFG Chocolate Brownies and was hunting down some apple purée. A thorough search of the sauces, soups, and so on aisle revealed none, or a least none that didn’t have heaps of additional sugar (completely defeating the point of this low-sugar recipe). I did another search to double check, but there was none to be found. Then I remembered a friend who used to use baby food to make apple sauce for her pork roasts. Three aisles down, the baby food selection did reveal pure apple purée – but only in 110g jars. And I needed a whole cup. But I really wanted to make the brownies, so four little jars were popped into my basket.

Once the brownie was made, devoured, and much complimented, I couldn’t bear to throw away the cute little jars and thus the Easy Peasy Tea Light pattern was born. It’s incredibly simple, requiring knowledge of only four easy stitches, very little shaping, and a construction that makes nigh impossible to make an ill-fitting tea light cover!
