Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: My Cup of Tea

Hi Everyone,
Today is day 3 of Lawn Fawn's October Inspiration Week.  Today we are focusing on My Cup of Tea.  I branched out again from a typical card and tried my hand at a little sewing on this one.  I created this little tea bag pocket using some felt from the craft store and embroidery floss. By the way, I don't own a sewing machine, nor do I have mad sewing skills.  So anyone could give this project a try!


I stamped out my image on tissue paper and used it as a pattern.  I stitched through the paper and carefully tore it away after I was done sewing.  I used a blanket stitch to sew up the sides & raw edges.


I cut the card the same size as my tea bags so that everything fits in the pocket perfectly.  This would make a nice little gift for someone who loves tea.  It could easily be carried in a purse or bag for some tea on the go!

Be sure to stop by and see the rest of the Design Team's creations and visit the Lawn Fawn blog too for your chance to win some Inspiration Week Giveaways! :)
