Warm and cuddly

I'm doing well with my Christmas presents this year. Over a month left and I'm almost done! I decided to make a really luxurious hot water bottle cover for my friend and bought the poshest soft yarn I could find - Mirasol Sulka, with 60% Merino, 20% Alpaca and 20% Silk. Oooh. I could almost become a yarnie.
AS for the pattern, I thought I'd try an illusion pattern. It looks like it's just stripey:

but it has this hidden picture on one side:

and this on the other:

I think she'll like it.

What a fabulous idea! Nothing like a good old fashion hot water bottle to warm the bones. Thanks for sharing it!
