DIY Tea Bag Favor


DIY Tea Bag favors plus a pouch to keep it clean.

The cost for me was under $15 for 36 favors.

Homemade Tea bag and travel pouch


Loose leaf 1tsp-2tsp per pouch

or Instant tea bags

mini safety pin

Muslin undyed/unbleached

Oraganic cotton/hemp spool

Sewing Thread and needle

Stamp for design

Fabric paint

I used a stencil brush to apply paint to stamp

Blow dryer to dry the paint quickly or air dry over night


POUCH: I used a Lipton Tea Bag in a foil wrapped pouch for the general template size then increased by 1/4" for seem allowance. and folded it over for a front and back.

muslin is roughly 7 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Fold over top and bottom edges 1/4" towards the wrong side and stitch the edge. You want to make a gap to fit in the string.

Cut string approx 8 inches You can attach a tag with hot glue at the end or just knot it.

Teabag: You can use a store bought tea bag which is a lot less expensive!

I took a pouch and folded it into a long tube and stiched and then sewed into one end the string and added 2 teaspoons whole tea and then stiched the bottom closed. Yes you can see these two seems which is why they are decorative stiches.

Now I have have a tube left to make a second tea bag.
