Thank you to everyone who joined in with us here at The Pleasant Times for the Snowflake Week! It was so much fun looking at your posts. We were tickled to get such a nice response!
Since we began with a tea, we'll end with some tea to take home, in a snowflake-themed tea wallet!
I have made this tea wallet a couple of times. There is another version of the tea wallet in felt here.
This is the way I did one recently to give as a gift to a tea lover, with snowflakes on the front and the back:
The "ingredients" are felt (I used pink), contrasting felt (I used white sparkle), a snip of ric-rac (you could use ribbon), a shank button and some tasty tea in individually wrapped bags!
...that is then laid over the other sections. Pin all this together, stitch down the middle, and then all the way around the edge (going over the stitching of the ric rac) about 1/8 inch. The neat thing about doing this in felt, is that if the edges are a bit uneven (for instance, if they shift during stitching), you can trim them!
Finally, sew a button to the front right side, fill with tea bags, fold the wallet, and pull the ric-rac loop around the button to keep closed.
I hope these instructions are clear; feel free to email me if something is not working! -Editor
