Tea Wallet

Tea wallet gift for my friend

I have a friend in Winnipeg who I used to go out for tea with pretty much every week. I miss her a ton, and she just started school not too long ago, so when I saw this tea wallet tutorial online , I knew I def had to make her one.  Now she can throw this handy little contraption into her bag and enjoy tea anywhere, including school. The Elvis material is a little boyish, but I think the gold inside makes a perfect contrast. I’m pretty excited at how it turned out, and the bow makes it look even more girly and festive.
I think I might make one for myself too!

I tweaked this one slightly, but the tutorial for it is found righta here:

….a few more pics…

This is it folded up WITH the tea and stuff inside of it, so bulk wise it’s fairly compact

I only put tea and sugar in it, but there’s definitely more space for creamers or coffeemate packages (which would probably fit better) and stir sticks or whatever else

I used a snap closure to fasten it, but if I remade it I think velcro would be a lot more efficient/ button-falling-off proof.

Peace out🙂,
