    I finally made two of these the other day! I had loved seeing this when it was posted, and bookmarked it planning on making some, but got busy doing other things...then the other day someone posted on this thread so it popped up and I decided to bite the bullet and do it! The hardest thing is deciding what teas to put in the pockets! Thanks so much for the tute!

    How cute is that!

    QUOTE=mamabird3;1506589]I have had many requests for this pattern. Please bear with me, since I don't have a pattern to follow I will have to just put it in my own words with bad cell phone pictures. Please feel free to ask for clarification on anything. Here we go....


    Cut a 9" X 1" strip of fabric
    fold in half with wrong sides together and press
    then open and fold edges into the middle press
    fold in half again and press (just like binding)
    Sew down the length to make the loop for the tea wallet[/QUOTE]

    The extra fold give you a place to tuck in the loop. Otherwise the raw edges of the loop would show. Glad so many of you found a use for this patter!

    Maggie I am so sorry, I did not do a wristlet tutorial. I won't have time to anytime soon. I am trying to remember where i got the pattern from so I can post a link for you.

    I have lost track of everything in the move and am still needing to go through the closet and find it.

    I made several of the teabag wallets for Christmas gifts and also made a matching purse tissue holder from this tutorial: http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...r-t107636.html

    They make a nice set when the fabric matches. I included a set in my box to my Secret Santa partner here on the Board. I love both of these tutorials.

    Great tutorial, thanks for taking the time and effort to post this. These teabag wallets make really nice little gifts or craft sale items. I've made a bunch of these over the past couple of years.

    Mamabird3, I saw the cutest little girl in the kiddy seat of a shopping cart at Walmart. She wore a pretty dress with matching wristlets on her arms. She acted as if she knew she looked pretty. What a resourceful mama! Hope you find the link to make these.

    Ok ladies.. I found the pattern for the wristlet. I am not going to do a tutorial on it but it is from Lazy Girl Design. The pattern name is "Maggie". I believe it comes in two different sizes, but I enlarged the pattern to make a purse for my reading device. I also changed how I did the handle. Have fun with it!! I'll post a pic of the ones I made if I can find them.

    Wristlet

    Here is one of the wristlets I made from a left over quilt block. I used the cute embroidery stitches on my machine to finish it off and give it that extra touch. They make a great little extra special way to give a gift card. Like I said I made bigger ones with long handles for a purse too.
