Tea Bag Pouches and Cloth Tea Bag Project

I used a stamp and fabric piant on the Pouch Do not use on the tea bag.

These can be ANY design and Color you choose!

The pictures below show me making an actual cloth tea bag.

use the Un opened tea bag as a template for the pouch and the Tea bag.

Take one of the pieces and instead of sewing a pouch we are going to fold so we get a long tube.

Sew along long seem and what the bottom will be and turn it outside in so the seems are inside the tea bag.

Leave top open.
