My semester has finally ended and summer has begun, so I have dived into craft projects.

My boss, coworker, and I all love tea so I made three tea bag wallets, one for each of us. The first one was sized incorrectly and could only fit four tea bags in its slots and 3 sweeteners in hidden pockets; but the other two can fit six bags and 5 sweeteners. This was also my first time making button holes by hand, since my ancient machine doesn't have an easy setting for it.

Then I also made this tea mat that holds a spoon and tea bag. I want to make another one so I have a set for when company comes over.



And the back view, I was proud of this part since it was the first time I ever tried to line fabric up specifically for a design.



I haven't sewn in a while, so this felt quite nice, and cutting out the fabric was a great activity while watching tv!

Those are so cute!  Did you make up your own pattern or get one somewhere.  I'm a huge tea fan and would love to make something like these!

Nice job - smaller than the original tea bag holders.

gigiriv: I got the pattern from here. Quick note for the pattern if you want to try it out, the main pieces have to be cut to 9.5 x 14.5. If you cut them to what the pattern says you only get the four pocket one like the smaller tea wallet I made. But I definitely say make some, they are so quick and easy!

Very nice.  They are different from the usual tea wallets.
