I did this project with some of the kids I work with. Our youngest crafter for this project was four years old, our oldest was nine. For safety reasons we had the four year old use a blunt embroidery needle and thread, a 7 year old who made a bag with a hanger to hold hers by hand sewing, while the nine year old was able to accomplish this project and make a bag to go with it with an iron and sewing machine using all straight stitching.

For those of you who enjoy Botanicals in your bath these Bath Teas are perfect for the bath without clogging up the drain or making a big clean up job in the tub when you are done and you can personalize your Bath Spa experience with your personalized and signature combinations.

Step 1: Materials Needed

You will need:

Fill-able Extra Large Tea Bags, 5 �s (I got mine from brambleberry.com for about 10 cents each but many craft stores carry them as well)

Scraps of fabric cut 6 x 11 inches
Straight Pins
Embroidery Thread
Embroidery Needle
Washable Marker (optional) or tracing pencil

Assorted Trims for decorations

Colorants, Scents (Optional) and Fillings for Tea Bags or Potpourri for Sachets.

Can you use these to brew drinkable tea also?
Yes but don't use the accessory bag, It would make a large pot Donald. Thanks for commenting
