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