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!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
