I got it on vacation on sale a few years ago and have been 'saving' (aka hoarding) it.  It's a Tina Givens pattern. Opal Owl's house.

3553  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tea Wallet Tutorial on: January 31, 2012 02:02:45 PM
Have you been wanting to make your own tea wallet?  Here's a tutorial for you.

You'll need 5 by 7 inch cuts of outside fabric, inside fabric and a piece of flannel which will help give your wallet some stability.  You'll also need a 2.5 by 7 inch cut of your inside fabric and a 3.5 by 7 inch cut of your outside fabric.  These will be the interior pockets.  Lastly, you'll need an elastic hair tie and a button to finish your wallet.

Fold over and iron a quarter inch of your pocket fabric.  Sew it down.  Repeat for your other pocket fabric.  If your fabric has an orientation to it, make sure you sew the correct edge. 

Line up and pin your two pockets to the bottom of your interior fabric.  Sew a 1/8 inch seam through all three layers at the bottom to secure them together. 

Now it's time to layer them all together.  Place your outside fabric on the table, right side up.  Then place your interior fabric (with the pockets already sewn on at the bottom) with the right side facing your outside fabric.  This means these right sides will be facing each other.  On top of that lay your piece of flannel.  Mine has animal prints on it.  It doesn't matter which side of your flannel is up, it will be hidden inside when you are done.  Pin it all together.   

Sew a 1/4 inch seam around the layered fabric 'sandwich', leaving about 1 1/2 inches open on one side so you can turn it.  Before you start sewing, decide where to leave the turn opening.  Have a good look at your fabric.  Leave the opening where you want your elastic tie inserted.

Before you turn everything right side out, clip the corners.  Rather than just doing a 45 degree angle, I do a rounded cut. 

Turn it right side out using a chopstick to help with your corners, iron it (very important) and place the hair elastic where you want it.  Pin it in place.

Sew a 1/4 inch seam around the entire edge, make sure you sew over the elastic twice to make it secure.

It's time to sew your button on, opposite your elastic.  The thread gets hidden inside a pocket. Sweet!

The last thing you should do is sew a seam right down the middle.  Load it with tea, sweetener, pepper flakes, whatever your heart desires.  Pop it in your purse and you're good to go.

Here's the fantastic package I received from texscrapper.  First up is a bee-utiful blue bag with black and white accents.  So pretty.  I especially love the buttons she included at the handles.  There was a matching fabric covered notebook that went right into my purse.  Isn't that a great idea?? 

As an extra, she sent me an etched honey jar straight off of my wist!  My husband and I keep bees, this will be well loved.  Thank you so much for being my partner and sending me such lovely lovely things!

Any questions, just let me know.   Smiley
Can I come live with you?  Wink

LOL, pretty sure I've made that request in the past too. Dreamy life, busy but so satisfying I'm sure.

Awww, you guys are so sweet!!  I'm guessing the fact that we've just started lambing doesn't help, right?   Wink

I love the fabric of the Kindle cover, it looks really cool...do you happen to know who makes it? 

I bought it a few years ago in a small quilt shop while on vacation.  I've been hoarding it, nobody else in this swap hoards fabric, right??  Or spends their vacation time perusing fabric shops...  It's a Tina Givens pattern called Opal's House.  I Just found it on Amazon. 

My package arrived today from texscrapper and it's awesome!  I'll post photos tomorrow in better light.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone!

Do you mind me asking what state or growing zone you live?

Not at all.  We're in Virginia, zone 7.
