DIY Tea Wallet Sewing Pattern

I love getting emails from my readers.  I love when you send photos of projects you've completed or ask questions.  I also love getting ideas for sewing projects that are useful to you.  That is how this DIY tea wallet pattern came about.

This post contains affiliate links to products I recommend.  I do make a portion off any you may purchase.  See full disclosure here.



I had a reader email me at the beginning of the year wondering if I had such a pattern or would be willing to create one.  Of course I said I'd add it to my sewing list.


It has taken me the better part of this year to get it on my calendar, researched, designed and sewn up.  But here it is.  And I must say I am very happy with the end result.

Not only is it useful, but it turned out so pretty.  I hope you'll be able to create some for yourself or your friends and family.

This would make a really easy gift for the holidays and is definitely a nice scrap busting project as well.

Step 3
Pin two pieces of ribbon to either side of the tea wallet.  Tuck the ribbon into one of the pockets to keep it from accidentally getting sewn.

With Right Sides Together (RST), Pin the exterior piece of the tea wallet to the interior piece.  Mark a 2-3" opening to turn the wallet later.
