    I need some help!
    I can't get the part for the second set of pockets: "on the unsewn edge, fold up 5" and then fold back 2 1/2". Press and then sew 1/4" seam at the top of the pocket like the other side. Can someone help with this?

    Thx,
    Nancy

    Yea! I got it! Sometimes you just need to keep folding! I will try to post pics for the first time.

    I sell them for $11 plus a few extra bucks for shipping. I would take better pictures if I had a working camera. Maybe someone. Please feel free to ask for clarification as well. I know my directions are a bit off.

    Thank you so much for this tutorial mamabird!! I just made my first tea bag wallet and now I plan to make them for teacher/ therapist/nurses gifts for my daughter's school. She is handicapped and I always send in little gifts for everyone and had no ideas for this year. You're a life saver!!

    I wanted to share the tea bag wallets that I made today. The batik one has a very pretty vintage glass button that is an irredescent blue color and the button on the other one is a little river rock that I picked up at my sister's vacation house. She bought a little cabin on a river in PA last year and she just loves it. Every year she asks for tea bags in her Christmas stocking. So, I made this wallet for her and I drilled holes in the river rock to make the button. I know that she will love it!

    Thanks again! I can't believe how much I have learned in my short time here at this forum!

    Zappycat, you did a wonderful job on those wallets. People who get them will love them. I made three out of a fabric with teacups on it. Tea drinkers love to get them. Thanks, Mamabird, for posting this tutorial.

    Not being one to know how to sew, other than a quilt, I think with this tutorial, I can actually make something that resembles a sewing project.. I am going to attempt it, and possibly make enough for some stocking stuffers.. Thanks so much!!!

    Teacup! Thank you! I was thinking that these would be adorable in teacup fabric... and with a teacup or teapot button! Yes, they are great gifts!

    Mamabird3,
    I can't thank you enough! My teacher/therapists/ nurses gifts for my handicapped daughter's school are now completed (yey!!) and filled with an assortment of Bigelow tea packets that The Christmas Tree Shop was selling. I think that they make very nice personal gifts... from the heart! I'm going to put them in little cello bags and tie a tag on each one that says "Beccah thinks you are tea-rrific!"
    Thank you!

    I am not what you call a quick study when it comes to following written instructions.I have been working on this all afternoon trying to figure out what the pictures are telling me and what the instructions are.
    It seems like so many others are getting it with out a bit of trouble.I just don't get the folding part.
    It is a great little tea bag holder and it looks so easy.
    But I will leave it alone for now and try again later.
    Thank you so much for sharing your pattern.grannyann

    Love it. My BFF gave me one as a gift and now I can pay it forward. I travel quite a bit, and it is perfect for that. By the way, if you are going for an extended trip, 2 teabags will fit in each cubby.

    Wow.. Just when I think this post has died down for good it pops back up again. I love that everyone is enjoying making the teabag wallets. So cool!

    Thinking of designing a coupon carrier. Once I finish everything else I have to do!!!
