Yesterday I was reading Bonnie Hunter's blog and saw a tea wallet that someone had made for her. I thought to myself, "Hmmm - how hard would that be to make?" This morning at 0 dark 30 I got out of bed and made this
Bonnie's folds up differently but this is kind of like a credit card holder I make so I just changed the dimensions a little. Cute, fast and easy. I fused some batting to the outer cover and did a little stipple quilting just to give it some texture and weight. I put the button on with a six ply piece of embroidery floss. It is an easy method to put on a decorative button and holds up great. The best thing is that I was stumped as to what to make for my middle sister's birthday. I dug through my decaf tea bags and filled this one so her "made" gift is finished. (Now I just have to find the "buy" gift!)
I took this photo in my dining room at 6am this morning. My "backdrop" is part of my tea pot collection. I have these three for Easter. (Just showing you my pretties!)
Time for a shower and getting ready for work. It is raining like crazy right now and I really would like to spend the day at home. I am so tempted....
