Inspired by [sweet.tx.tea], who first sent me one via snail-mail, I made several Tea Bag Buddies of my own!

How to make Tea Bag Buddies


First, find a tea that you like, the stronger-smelling, the better. I started with basic, cheap tea bags, because I wasn't sure if the project would work out or not.

Second, gather the tools you'll need, which include thread (whichever colours you like), needles, buttons, and other items which may be useful in decorating. For some of my Tea Bag Buddies, I used leather bits and cut shapes from them, then stitched them on.

Stitch up your tea bags with whatever features you want your Buddy to have. Get creative! Here's how mine turned out so far:
