Teabag holder finished

Don't you just love a cup of freshly brewed tea? I know I do, but sometimes I go into hotels and restaurants and they don't actually have decaf tea, so I have decided to carry my own around in my handbag just in case!   Up until now I wrapped my teabags in aluminium foil but now I have this lovely little teabag holder to put them in, I hope you like it as much as  I do! 
It is made from quilt fabric that has been interfaced with fusible interfacing and lined with a small piece of wadding and fine batiste cotton.
The cross stitch pattern is a freebie in the previous post below.  

Until next time, happy stitching!

Lynn this is absolutely gorgeous. The fabric and sweet design combine to make it the prettiest tea bag holder ever :>)Like you I drink decaf and carry mine around with me so this really is an excellent little project. Now have I got time to make one before we set off for France tomorrow morning..haha!

It's lovely Lynn. I like the fabby you used for it. I've never been a fan of hot tea, which is really strange as I am a huge fan of iced tea. Go figure, lol.

What a great idea and it is a darling pattern. Have some friends that like to take their own teabags with them - will make a nice gift for them.

Wow I love your blog! I am obsessed with Jane Austen and High Tea, so I am a little surprised I have not found you before! I am looking for inspiration, because I am going to send my best friend a tea gift for her birthday.
