This is a fun little tutorial I put together for my daughter's play kitchen. She loves to run a cafe and serve up all of her customers tasty treats. Normally she makes me coffee - if that says anything about how much coffee I actually drink - but I wanted to make some tea bags for her to play with.
So I just started with those organza jewelry bags - you get 4 for a $1.00 at the dollar store. I cut the ribbons out of the bags by just snipping off the end and pulling them out.
I just cut out a rectangle of black felt and placed it in the bag to represent the tea leaves. I wanted to use chunky glitter or confetti, but we only had red, so I went with the black felt.
Then, I put one of the ribbons I pulled out of the bag into the top and stitched the sack shut.
Finally, I stitched down a small square of felt for the tab. I would have ironed some little gems or monogram applique on if my iron was working. I guess that three years of using it every day while sewing has finally burned it out.
So, here is the set of 4 that I made. On a side note, this would be a super cute project for a baby shower favor or bridal shower favor filled with bath salts instead of felt.
