1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Quick question about homemade tea bags on: October 29, 2010 04:10:38 PM
In the process of making and/or thinking about and preparing Christmas pressies for people this year. One of things I am making is homemade tea bags, I'm struggling to work out what to use for the bag. I have seen paper ones you can buy that fold over at the top but thought something like muslin or a fabric or sorts might work better.

Has anyone tried this? What worked for you?

Thanks

Was inspired by a post by 'xperimentl' here......  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=339980.0 using a sew mama sew tutorail here....  http://www.sewmamasew.com/store/media/blog/SMSAprilBags.pdf - the shoulder bag option

Have never made a proper bag before so liked the look of this as it didn't need the dreaded zip!





This is it with 'stuff' in it, makes the top scrumple



This gives you an idea of scale, apologies for bad pic




Only changes I'd make in future would be thicker handles, but all in all quite pleased Smiley only took about 3 hours to make (including ripping seams and re-stiching bits when i made mistakes)

New waistcoat/vest made using pure new wool fabric remnants and a sale McCalls pattern. Fully lined inside.


Still learning, so made LOADS of mistakes, some you can see, but managed to come out wearable and alright I think. First time i've tried to doing darts and other tailoring things.

I'm pretty new to this - have only made a bag - this was my first completed attempt at clothing. Used a pattern in Diana Rupp's book sew and linen fabric. Turned out alright I think. Still can't sew in straight lines yet. Can't post pictures as have less than 10 ten posts, so have put links to them.
