Happiness is cross stitching blog

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!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    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.
