my friend katie is obsessed with tea, so for her upcoming birthday, i sewed her a little wallet just for tea bags.  it has four pockets, a snap closure, contrast lining, and a personalized, iron-transfer graphic.







i'm going to try again, making a few improvements (sewing execution, ahem) and cranking out more.  it's a great  project for scrap fabric, too, if anyone wants to try.

will add a tut to the blog entry(http://everythingatonce.wordpress.com/2007/01/15/k-tea-tote/) when i get a chance.

thanks!

I always read the text after looking at the pictures, and I was like "Well that's weird, why would it be K-tea?" and then when I read it I laughed and had a "Ohhhh" moment. Now I suddenly wish my name was katie. ahaha.
I love things tea related and this is so awesome! I must make one.

what a neat idea! I need to make a ginger tote like this for my firend at work. I got her hooked on a ginger and honey drink from the ethnic food section of the supermarket. This is a perfect birthday present (coming up shortly). Thank you for sharing your idea

That is just fabulous! I must whip one up for my self. As if I need to add another project to my to-do list.  Wink
Psst: I think you're being to hard on yourself. The sewing looks splendid from here.

It's so creative. I love it! My sister used to sign her name KT on letters, so I'll have to tell her about K-Tea!

I don't know how it is that all of the members of the Tea Time Swap I'm in haven't found their way to your little inventiom here, but bravo. If I hadn't already sent something similar I'd be cursing myself for having sent already! I love it. I may have to make a few of yours for my jealous friends. The thing I made doesn't look as neat and tidy as this does. Oh Poo! I hope Miss Vicki doesn't read this, she'll know I made her something similar 'cuz I just said so, Oh well. Sorry Miss Vicki. Hope you like it anyway. Keep the Tea Wallets going! Don't forget all those instant ice tea drink packets they've just come out with. Kids will want these things for those individual Kool-Aid packets too I'd bet! What a versatile googah!

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?

I'd definitly love a tutorial or at least the measurements. I carry teabags in my purse all the time because i'm a big-time tea snob, and the packets are always getting ugly looking.

Is there such a thing as too much fabric or ribbon

Oh my gosh, that is so clever!  Why didn't I think of that (banging head against the wall)  I'll have to make one for my mom as she carries sweet & Low in her purse (why I have no idea I keep telling her restaurants do have that LOL) and they get all grungy looking.  Thanks so much for sharing and for the tut!  Cheesy

OH! That is super cute! I am obsessed with tea myself and will have to try your tutorial so that I can carry my own around (because tea served at restaurants are not so good)!
