Hummingbird applique, easy teapot cosy - happy national bird feeding month USA

This has got to be the easiest teapot cosy to make!  The fabrics I've used are some of my favourites, lovely quality and fabulous prints.  I've added the humming bird in celebration of national bird feeding month in the USA, established to encourage everyone to feed our wild birds.

Bird-Feeding Month was established in 1994 by John Porter, a man who so cared about the health and welfare of the birds that he read a resolution into the Congressional record. “I would like to recognise February, one of the most difficult months in the United States for wild birds, as National Bird-Feeding Month.” These were the words he spoke to the Speaker of the house, recognising the importance of birds both in our ecology, as well as the hearts and minds of people everywhere. Nothing says spring like the singing voices of our favourite wild birds.
