Tea Wallet

This is one of my go-to gift giving gifts. They are fun and easy to make and hugely practical. This is the tutorial I used. I modified a few things. I added a bit extra for the height of the pockets as some of the tea bags I use are a bit taller and I was having a few problems with them sticking out the top. Oh, and I didn’t use interfacing either, and I think it ended up thick enough, but if you were using really thin fabrics, you would probably want to add it. And lastly, I used one of the girl’s hair elastics instead of making a strip to hold the button in place. Last year I made quite a few of these for Mother’s Day gifts, and I think they were really well liked. I always have one in my diaper bag, just in case. Now in a moment of desperation for a good cuppa, all I have to do is find a cup of hot water. I really do love these, and as they use such little fabric, they are great stash busters as well. Have fun making some. I’d love to see them if you do try.

    What a wonderful idea. We love tea here. I love your tutorials. They are always so clear, creative and understandable.
    I also wanted to pop on over today to thank you for sharing such a wonderful blog. I’ve been reading for a good year or so but am not much of a commenter. Alas, I’ve had your blog on my own blog roll for a few months now. So, I just wanted to say thanks and let you know I hope to send a few more readers your way. Much luck to you! – jeanine ertl
