I wanted to make something as a thank you gift for my Godmother. She loves tea, so I decide to make her a travel tea bag holder. I used the tea she enjoys to create the pattern, so you may want to adjust the size depending on the size of your tea bag. These tea bags are 2 1/2″ wide by 3″ tall. It can hold 5 tea bags, or 4 tea bags and 2 sugars or any combination that fits into 5 slots.
First gather up your supplies…
2 pieces of fabric (matching, coordinating, contrasting) cut 19″ by 6″ each
1 piece of fabric (matching, coordinating, contrasting) cut 5″ by 6″
1 piece of lightweight fusible interfacing cut just under 5″ by 6″
Snaps, buttons, or velcro to close
Iron all your pieces. Iron the fusible interfacing to the wrong side of the 5″ by 6″ piece of material. Now get your supplies to your sewing machine and hop over to my You Tube Channel for detailed instructions for making this great gift.
