I raided my fabric scrap stash and ended up making eight of these adorable tea bags. After daily use for the last month and a half they've held up really well too.
Supplies Needed (per bag desired):
- 3"x4" of fabric - I just used scrap fabric that I already had
- 4" Bakers Twine or Yarn
- 1.5" x 0.75" White Felt
- Poly-fill or Cotton balls
- Template (I made this just or you)
Step 2: Tie a knot at one end of the twine and lay it down the center of the tea bag with the knot outside the fabric.
Step 3: Place right sides together and stitch 1/4" seam allowance around all sides except bottom.
Step 4: Turn right-side out. Stuff with poly-fill or cotton balls and fold bottom edges in. Stitch across bottom to close.
It should look like this, your almost done!
Step 5: Tie a knot at the other end of the twine and place knot in center of white felt. Fold the felt in half and stitch over thread to secure.
Because the tea tag is soooooo tiny you may just want to hand stitch it, or if you decide to machine it like me, try this trick using 2 pins stuck in the felt to help create handles.
You don't need to stitch around the felt because it doesn't fray.
They fit in both her tiny and larger tea sets.
I'm not joking when I say she plays with them every day!
I love being able to craft my sweet little girl gifts like this. What have you made for your child? I'd love to see what you're up to!
