Cutting + sticking + sewing + baking. My creative life.

Tea Pouches

Tea pouches have been my go-to small gift to make for friends for a while.  Ayumi Takahashi‘s pattern is ingenious and fun to sew.

I made a parliament of owl tea pouches (love a collective noun me!).

Festive tea pouches.

I recently visited Eternal Maker in Chichester, a wonderful fabric shop, and purchased some adorable ballet material off-cuts.  I started taking an adult beginners ballet class a couple of years ago.  I made myself a cute ballerina tea pouch and a Swan Lake one which I will give away.  It has a great mother-of-pearl star button.  Just leave a comment and I will pick a name out of a hat.

Schwanensee is Swan Lake in German.

This is Ayumi Takehashi’s (Ayumi Mills) excellent book Patchwork Please.  It has patterns for some lovely Zakka projects.

I have quite a collection of complimentary teabags which I (and my Mum, thank you xx) have collected, already to insert in to a tea pouch.

Love Melanie Xx

These are amazing. I think the Parliament of Owl ones are my favorite. Keep up the great work and blogging, Melanie. Be blessed.
