Anyone for Tea?

I finally got around to making the Teabag Pouch from the Zakka 2.0 Patchwork Please sewalong!



That tea themed tea towel that I got in Matalan yesterday has been chopped up 


and I've even had a go at appliquéing!


This particular item in the book doesn't come with any process shots and the wording is a bit tricky to understand in places but there is a pictorial tute over at Finding Fifth which is really helpful.



I would like to point out that when attaching your elastic/ribbon/string for the closure, lay your exterior fabric rectangle right side facing up, place your closure in the middle of the top edge with the raw edges overhanging the raw edge of fabric and sew in place - in the same way as attaching ribbons to the baby blankie seen here.



I think I'll put this away for my friend Claire for Christmas, she has a whole shelf of a kitchen cupboard dedicated to different flavours of tea!  Perhaps I should have made a more industrial sized one...

So that means I can link this up to Christmas In July too! - if I could remember where it's being hosted!!!  So for now I'm linking to Sew Cute Tuesday, Quilt Story, Freemotion By The River, Thursday Threads, Needle & Thread Thursday, Link A Finish Friday, Can I Get A Whoop Whoop, Crazy Mom Quilts.

Christmas in July is over at Love By Hand :o)
