Hi y'all! In this 'ible I want to show you how I made my "Tea Bag Travel Holder" for next to nothing! This is what I made for Christmas gifts this year and something I made for myself as well. I'm trying to be healthier and figured Green Tea might be a good way to start. lol. Besides the gagging response that the tea has on me, I'd say it's going pretty good...

I love to have accessories to go along with everything! When I started drinking tea I just had to have some cute little holder for the bags. I went online to see what was out there and found something similar to what I ended up making but the price was outrageous! They wanted over $30. for one!! So I took a good look at the one for sale and went to work making one of my own.

I hope you enjoy and rate it if you like it!

(NOTE: Picture 1 & 2 are machine sewn and picture 3 &4 are hand sewn so this project can be done either way. The hand sewn tea bag holder took longer but turned out lovely. Enjoy.)

Step 1: What you will need.

Here's a list of what you will need..
  • Fabric
  • Ribbon
  • 6 Tea Bags
  • Sewing Machine (Or needle and thread for hand sewn)
  • Measuring & Cutting devices
  • Straight Pins

Yep.. That is it.

Glad I could help! I'm still trying to get a taste for Green Tea but darn it's hard! Haha.
