Thank you for all your kind words!   Kiss

I noticed you did not sew the inside ends ( next to the biz end of the snaps). Was it too bulky ?

Also, what size needle did you use in the machine, and was this just regular sewing thread ?

I have friends who do not drink coffee, and this would be a great little tote for their chamomile and stevia.

I didn't sew the inside ends just because I'm lazy.  Wink   Just kidding... I tried it once, and wasn't happy with trying to work around the snaps.  But that's just me.

You totally could sew the ends... it's not bulky at all.  It just might be a bit tricky.  You would either have to sew the ends before you put on the snaps -- but you'd have to be very careful you fold everything exactly right, since the papers/vinyl shift until you add the snaps, and you could end up with a wallet that won't fold flat or is wonky.  Or, you could sew the ends after you put on the snaps, in which case you'd have to work around the snaps.  If you try it, please post pics and let us know how/what you tried!

I found that a medium duty to heavy duty machine needle works best.   But keep in mind that the heavy duty needles leave bigger holes, though.  And I just use regular all-purpose (Coats & Clark) sewing thread.

And I LOVE the tea wallet idea!   Cheesy
