Take your tea bags with you in organised style!

A unique project I dreamed up the other day when thinking:

"what am I going to put my tea bag in"!?



You Will Need

Project Cost

  1. Step 1 1

    * First draw and cut out a 7.5 x 21cm (3 x 8inch) rectangle out of your felt.

    * Repeat this on 4 different felt colours.

    **How many you cut out is up to you, but the more you cut out the more 'pockets' you will have at the end.
    I only wanted 4, so only cut out 4 rectangles from 4 different colours.

  2. Step 2 2

    * Fold the bottom of the rectangle up 8.5 cm/3.5 inch and pin.

    This will be your pocket!

    * Repeat this step on all 4 pockets.

  3. Step 3 3

    I then cut out a crescent shape at the top of the piece that you just folded up.
    (see picture)

    This makes it easier to remove the teabag :D

    Repeat this on all 'pockets'

  4. Step 4 4

    I then embroidered some names of the fronts of my 'pockets'


    ('XT' in love of X files- as in 'unknown tea')

  5. Step 5 5

    Then stitch the sides of the 'pocket'

    I used blanket stitch and used same thread as I used to stitch the name.

  6. Step 6 6

    Stitch all the pockets together by pinning them and just stitching whip stitch or a simple binding stitch used for books.

    You can just leave the pockets looking like this is you prefer.

    For the front cover I cut some more felt measuring 8.5 x 10.5 cm (3.5 x 4.4 Inches)

  7. Step 7 7

    I then pinned the front and back cover to the pockets and sewed the binding stitch .

    Be sure to go though all of the layers- this will make the binding strong.

    I started 1/4 from the top then went up then down the spine. This makes the binding stronger also.

    As I said before you could use a simple whip stitch to link all of the layers.

  8. Step 8 8

    Once all stitched together, sew whatever you want on the front cover.

  9. Step 9 9

    Then fill up with Tea bags and you're ready to go!
