I am so enamored with blogs. I love reading them. I love posting on mine. I love how you can get to know people you might never meet this side of heaven. The truth in the statement that 'It's a small world after all' is so very true!
Now I'm not rambling about blogs for the sake of rambling. No, I actually have a point...blogs give me inspiration for projects. The pictures also inspire me to take better pictures too, but then I digress. Anyway, my latest project was a tea wallet.
As you may remember from this post that I had joined in with luvinthemommyhood's tea cup month. Well Shannon posted an farewell post that had a picture of this project which I immediately put on my MUST MAKE NEXT list. What I found so amazing is that the project had been a linked project from this blog. I think that it is so AWESOME how a project can be posted and then linked by people all over the world. I don't have to read every craft and sewing blog to get ideas from people. This is just so cool!
So then last night about 9:30ish and nothing is on the television but I'm not ready to go to bed I decide why don't I just make that tea wallet. I go and dig (alright I pick my two favorite fabrics from the top of the pile) and start in on it. The fabrics were both cotton so I did use interfacing. I sewed it all up, attached the button and Voila! before 10:30 it was finished...complete with tea bags. Husband wasn't as thrilled about it as I was but I wasn't too surprised about that.
So I suppose I shouldn't torment you any longer and just post the pictures :)
There you have it! A quick project. The only modification is I used elastic for the button closure rather than ribbon or fabric. I like elastic better because it is so much smaller and easier to open and keep closed.
I promise to report back about my challenge but I have a plan for how I want to do it and well, it's gonna take just a little bit of time.
