    I started by making the tea bag wallet with the bumble bee material....then, of course, decided I needed placemats...which of course lead to a tablerunner! No wonder I have so many UFOs!! I was determined to finish this one though....will give to my son's high school golf tournament as a doorprize.
    Oh what a busy bee I've been!

    Thanks for all your good words!! I found a tea bag wallet tutorial on line... They are really fun to make, but it is really important to have a thick fusible web..I learned the hard way!

    my daughter would absolutely love those, she loves bumbles, I have the same fabric at home but not that much, I made her a checkbook holder with the same fabric but in blue and green and yellow...beautiful work....

    Your placemats/runner and tea bag holder are great. Thanks for the tutorial link for the tea bag holder. I think this will make a nice little gift for my mother. I will put tea bags in one side and folded tissues in the other.

    I always wanted to a wallet, and this one looks very easy to make, but yours came out very professional
