How to Crochet Tea Bag Holder Pouch

I've become a tea drinker, yep. In Chile, I used to sit down with my Grandma to talk and so many times I ended up drinking her tea. I always thought hers tasted so much better than mine. Then I went through a coffee phase which lasted several years. Now I am a tea drinker again. Herb tea are some of my favorites because of their healthy value.  

I have made this crochet tea bag holder / pouch to keep my tea in place in my purse. Ya know, I carry toys and papers that is soooo easy to misplace my tea. BUT now that is not happening anymore. Bravo, me. Now my tea is in one place ready to pull it out. 

The holder is big enough that allows for several tea bags in it. 

Tea anyone? 

ps: Thanks, Mom, for the super cute owl mug you got me last year. My daughter and I take turns using it because she likes it so much, too.

How to Embroider on Crochet

Adding an embroidery sentiment to your crochet will make your project stand out and add even more personalization. You could use this technique to create personalized gifts. You could make different tea bags in different colors and embroider the name or initial or anything that you would like!  

If you do decide to embroider your tea bag holder, be sure to do it before sewing it together. 

How to Close your Tea Bag Holder / Pouch

Use the invisible hem stitch to sew your long rectangle into a pouch. 

Sew a button on and you are all set! 

Another option is to cut out any shape of wool felt and glue it to the pouch like the one that has the star. 

In this picture you can see the two different options used for personalizing your tea bag holder. The light blue has the word "tea" embroidered and the read one has a felt star glued. 

Do you drink tea? What kind do you like?

Happy Crocheting!

Crochet is so fun and relaxing. Crocheting is even more fun when we get to use our skill and make crochet gifts for everyone we know. Or perhaps when we can even use our crochet as a business and sell our handmade items at craft shows.

The ultimate goal of crochet is to SHARE what we are able to make with our hands.

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

This post contains affiliate links.

The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.
