Fun little craft project for fall



Some time ago my daughter Carrie gave me this lovely little tea wallet:
 
Here is the pattern she used:  Little Birdie Tea Wallet

It is very handy for when we travel to our favorite getaway destinations and may have access to hot water for tea but not a variety of tea bags.  The little wallet means I can take along a small assortment of my favorite teas with me.  Carrie made one side differently so it holds index cards.  Very handy for note-taking or list-making on the go.

I'm planning a fall-themed giveaway soon and thought it would be fun to make the tea wallet with a fall theme.  Here's how the fall tea wallet turned out:


And here is the inside:

I also made one with a Christmasy look for a Christmas in July gift exchange:

Isn't it amazing how the look can vary with just a few simple color changes?

This pattern is quick, easy, and lots of fun.  And you will find many other adorable projects at Wee Folk Art!

  1. Those are so cute and handy! I use mine to hold index cards with scripture that I want to memorize. I love how versatile it is.

  2. Yes, they are so versatile. I wish I had thought to make mine with one side for index cards, but I was only thinking tea bags! Guess I will just have to make more!

  3. Would be cute as a "pill holder" as well...ibuprofen, Immodium, tums etc that you might need as you are out and about! Wrap the pills in saran or use those little reclosable bags or tins.

  11. This is a fun project, Nikki. Hope you make one and that you blog about it if you do! If you haven't already, do check out that Wee Folk Art site where I got the pattern. They have a ton of fun things to make for or with kids, and I think they have some home schooling resources, too.
