Teabag Wallet Tutorial


If you're not a standard tea drinker, how about keeping a few of your favourite flavours in a portable and handy wallet!


Teabag Wallet Tutorial


This simple tutorial will have you 'bagged' up in no time!

(And a great little gift idea for a tea loving friend don't you think!)


You will need:

Exterior: 1 x (5" x 7")

Lining: 1 x (5" x 7")

Pockets: 2 x (5" x 7")

Heavy Sew-in Vilene: 1 x (5" x 7")

505 Basting Spray

chalk pen or non-permanent fabric marker

elastic hair bobble





1 Spray baste the vilene to the wrong side of the lining.



2 Bring both long edges of each pockets wrong sides together and press.



3 Place the first pocket onto the right side of the lining, with the folded edge of the pocket positioned 1.5" down from the top of the lining.



4 Sew along the bottom of the pocket 1/8" from the raw edge and through all layers.



5 Place the last pocket on top, this time with the raw edge aligned with the bottom of the lining. Chalk a line through the centre as shown.



6 Sew along the chalk line, through all layers.



7 Machine tack a hair bobble just above the front pocket, on the right side. The loop of the elastic must face in towards the wallet.



8 Pin the exterior right sides together with the pocket section. Sew around all sides using 1/4" seam allowance, leaving a 2" gap along the bottom edge.



9 Turn the wallet right sides out through the gap in the lining. Press under the raw edges of the gap.



10 Sew around all sides of the wallet using 1/8" seam allowance, closing the gap as you go.



11 Press the wallet in half and sew a button onto the front and aligned with the elastic.



Fill up with your favourite teas and off you go!

  1. Thank you for this pattern! I carry tea bags with me everywhere I go but I usually put them in a Zip-loc™ bag and stuff them into my purse. My sister carries around tea bags too. I can't wait to make this adorable wallet! One for me and one for her. Maybe I'll make a whole bunch. Such fun! Thanks again!

  2. Hi! I love this pattern and want to make this for a gift. I’m in the US and don’t know exactly what heavy sew in vilene is. How heavy is this?
