Thanks! Yes they are Smiley I love this fabric and have been hoarding it since my last trip to Jo-Anns in the summer (I live in Canada, Jo-Anns is a treat for me!) and when my best friend asked me to make her something with the fabric I immediately thought "But I want this fabric" so the tea wallet was perfect, I have loads left for a project for myself! Thanks again Smiley

Hey: I was just on E-Bay and they're offering Tea Wallets for $4-20. (No, not Four dollars and twenty cents, Four to twenty dollars.) Seriously. Look it up. Enter "Tea Wallets" on the search bar on E-bay.
I've made 4 of them. Each one had a different feature. I tried 2 sew in-snaps, I tried 2 clip-in snaps (I used too big of snaps, it didn't work very well.) and I tried the button and loop closure, and a single (slightly too big) snap. All of them had 4 inner strips for pockets (that is, 6 pockets).
The 2 people I gave the 2 good ones to admired them greatly.
The other 2, because of the fabric, are going to the Salvation Army  Tongue(in a midnight run, so no one knows who made them. I usually make such great stuff, no one would suspect me. {I agree, that sounds conceited.  Wink My apologies})I used a faux suede for the entire of one (It stretched out of shape when I sewed it) and I used a faux suede/flannel-backed satin for the other. (The satin unraveled at the seam Angry I hate satin!)

Here they are. The scissors are just there for scale. They aren't all that large. The ladies I gave them to appreciated them.

I made up 3 of these for Christmas gifts and they were so easy! I ended up giving 2 of them to different recipients than I originally intended, so I have more to make (plus one for me). I used pony tail holders for the closures (I got a bunch in fantastic colors). I did figure out (a little too late) that I put the first flap a little too high, so larger tea bags wouldn't fit. I'll pay a bit more attention on the next ones, and I'll take pics, too Wink

Thanks so much for this tutorial!

I love this idea, great way to use those scraps!

Oh, neat!  I must make some of these, for myself and some friends&family who are tea drinkers.  Thanks for passing on the idea.

Thanks for the tutorial kmsmaverick!

I made two of these tea wallets so far.  This one was my test one, the second one was a gift for my mother and of course I forgot to take a picture of it.

A few years ago I had made a pair of too-short pajama pants into capri length pajama pants.  The purple fabric used here is from what I cut off of the pants.

I did not use interfacing on this one because it was a test one and I figured I'd be the one using it and wouldn't mind if it were flimsy.  I did interface the one for my mother and it seems more stable.

Thanks again for the tutorial and all the pictures people have posted of their creations.
