ha ha that is a great idea!  carry more tea! Cheesy
Grin

It works too! 

Putting the tea bags in sideways makes most of them secure, and if I double up on particularly slick ones, they stay put as well!

I'm relieved, because I don't have any ribbon or elastic suitable for adding, and I promised myself that I would not buy anything new for this project.  Wink

Everyone feel free to keep chiming in with ideas, though!  My coworker wants me to make her one now, so I want to improve the design in any way I can.

I make tons of these but with only two pocket strips (four pockets).  The back/front pieces are 7" x 5" and the pockets are folded into 2.5" strips and one placed at the bottom edge and the top one 1" from the bottom and a seam up the middle as a divider.  I have no trouble with the tea bags falling out as the pockets are deep. A sugar packet goes in the top pocket and the tea bag in the bottom one, or any arrangement you want.  Usually one doesn't need to carry six tea bags; just refill.  Smiley

 Grin True! But I'm a bit of a weirdo   Wink ...AND I work two jobs, so having a selection of caffinated and decaf to choose from makes life a little nicer.

I've be struggling by without sugar! Never thought of the packets -- Brilliant! Thank you!

Well done!  Problem solved in a creative way...on to the next one!

I also like to carry a variety since I have no idea what mood I will be in...sometimes I need a calming tea, and other times, a nice invigorating one!  I would like to think of a way to carry a spoon as well, wrapped in a baggie or something... Cheesy

Oohhhh dear...I have a random espresso spoon that wouldn't be too tall....some sort of elastic looping, bit of hand-stitching.....this could work.....

Having just made a knitted needle role where I had the same problem, this might be helpful. What I did was flap over the top so anything that did slide out hit that flap, you could do one just at the top of each side, or one on each pocket. Also that was the last piece I put up and if you use two pieces, sew it together, flip it then do a slip stitch and finish it by sewing the flap on it still has that finished look without it seeming like an add on. I hope that makes sense.

I'm not a tea drinker, but this holder is very cute and I may try something like it for a friend, which I had never thought to do. So Thanks!
