Creative Christmas Tea Wallet Fun

Hello there!
It is another beautiful, sunny crisp Autumn day on the Causeway Coast...the frost was sparkling this morning & everything was still as I walked over the frosty grass....
and took a photo of this tree which seemed to be lit up in the early morning sunshine
Inside the house, chaos reigned as per usual!! But rather than dwell on the frantic goings-on in our home as we prepare for Thailand, I thought I'd introduce the next Creative Christmas project....
 These tea wallets are great fun to make & highly addictive (as Judith recently discovered!)
I made the one on the left a couple of years ago as a mothers day present for my lovely mummy who doesn't drink regular tea. Then I made these a couple of weeks ago for Judith & Sarah
They are a quick & fun way to make a lovely gift for someone...

For this one I used some antique lace & an ancient snap fastener (costing 2D according to the packaging!)


For these I added some fun applique
If you would like to make one I've added a tutorial to the Creative Christmas page
Thanks for stopping by & I hope you all have a wonderfully creative day!
Karen

  5. Those look like fun, I may have to make some too. I am still a bit overwhelmed by the fact that people carry their own tea about (read that on Judith's blog), not in Canada.

  6. I'm a tea drinker and like to have the kind of tea I like when I'm away from home. I will definitely be making myself one of these "tea wallets"...much more stylish than a baggie! This is a great little gift that can be personalized for the recipient.

    You must be so busy getting ready for your trip. Take care while away.
