I love these, I'm totally going to make a ton of them. I'm gonna try to get my hands on some of those tags too.

Since I posted, I've tried twice on two different kinds of fabric and it's not working out. The first time I tried felt and the second time I tried this really thing cotton. I'm going nuts, because after I fold it and go to sew up the sides, it gets stuck under the presser foot and won't move. I have no idea why and it's so annoying. Is there something I can do to make the fabric move along smoothly?

Its probably because you're using really thick fabric. Felt is hard to sew through. My suggestions is to loosen the tension and make the stitch length longer, then start sewing a centimeter or so past the edge of the fold. I hope that makes sense, like normally you'd start sewing at the end of the fold and then sew around, start a centimeter away from the edge and then sew and backstitch to the fold, then keep sewing forward. This usually works well. Good luck!

Okay, I am by NO means an accomplished seamstress, but this was so easy! I really did knock one out in just about 30 minutes...including breaks to put my two-year-old on the table with the sewing machine, answer his "What doing?" question over and over and also one stop when he decided to grab the thread out of the machine (grr). I'll edit later and post a picture, hopefully. I made it for a friend who loves tea, so I included a tag that says "tea bag" and sewed it on.

EXCELLENT TUTORIAL!! I'm so appreciative! Thank you so much!







Sorry for the blurry picture...I'm in a rush before work. Oh, and the tea bag tag is a joke...but the inside really includes tea and blue packets!

Great tutorial!  I made mine tonight and everything went great until I decided to add the snap.  It was the first time I had ever done that and I didn't get it exactly right so it's a bit wonky.  I will definitely make more & just be a bit more careful with the snap.  Thanks!

How do you keep the sides even? I can never sew straight enough to keep everything perfect.

I sandwiched mine under the zipper foot and used the edge of it as a guide.

That said, up until just recently all of my stitches were all over the place. Once I quit trying to feed the material through myself and relaxed and let the feed dog (right?) do it's job my stitches became straighter and I was less tense after sewing!
