These are so fun to make! They're like instant gratification...'cause they're so easy!
I used this tutorial: http://blog.christyscreations.com/?p=482

Only I used 2 bits of interfacing..fusible fleece on the outside and regular fusible on the inside...the pockets don't have any interfacing. Also, my measurements are 6 x 8 instead of 5 x 7 but yeah...I'm also going to experiment a bit with the closures...like maybe using a tab and snaps or something instead of the button and ribbon combo but other than that...great tutorial.

Here are mine:


Thanks for checking them out!  Cheesy

I <3 these! I made one for my partner in the tea/coffee swap and the tutorial has really helped me learn how to make other things as well that would have stumped me before.

This reminded me so much of yours melvinator, I had to check to see if this was you.

These are really great, I like the button and fabric on the second one.

I also made a tea wallet from that tutorial.  I used a flap and snap closure which I definitely liked better.  I'm a snap kinda girl though...I saw one though that had a length of ribbon that they wrapped around the button a couple times with a swatch of fabric cut into a teabag shape at the end.  that was cute.  As for the interfacing, i think you did a good job with increasing your interfacing.  Mine was too flimsy.  You did a great job btw!  your stitching looks great and I like the fabric choice.

Great job!  They turned out fantastic!  I have the tut bookmarked.  I want to make these but modify it a bit to hold packets of equal as well.

The color combos are really nice, I especially love the button on the yellow one Smiley

And I like the size of yours, next time I make one I may stealborrow your measurements Wink
