When the air is chilly and your indoor heating just isn’t cutting it, your hot water bottle is your best friend – but that friend doesn’t feel tip-top when all you feel is its rubbery exterior. That’s where a hot water bottle cover comes in handy, and they don’t come much sweeter than this crochet number from Gold Coast lady Shelley Bierma, aka Crafty Chicken Crafts. Good news: she can whip one up using your choice of colours, so you can match it to your bedding, your mood, or your favourite album cover. Oh, and best of all, it’s only twenty bucks. Yeah.
