Tea Bags for Playtime

Here are some tea bags I made for the girls to use during their tea parties.

Materials Needed:
Brown cotton fabric
Thin craft cord
White felt
Extremely small amount of stuffing

I took a business card and clipped the corners to get my pattern. I then traced the shape onto my fabric.

Make sure to use the traced line as your sewing line and not you cutting line. Insert sting through tea bag, making sure it catches on the top sewing line. Sew together. Make sure to leave bottom open for turning.

Turn right right side out. Stuff with very small amount of stuffing and sew closed. Cut felt into small squares and sandwich sting between pieces. Sew around edges of felt.

These would make a fun gift for any little girl in your life!
