Tea bag wallet
I tried out the tea bag wallet tutorial from Zoe at SewitGirl. I used the dimensions she said and found that three foil wrapped bags will only fit if you fold in the edges of the packet.
7 1/4 inches wide could be closer to 9 1/4 inches to fit three sachets. I also decided that the double thickness pocket was a bit bulky and since I don't use sugar sachets I didn't need the extra pockets. So I made it shorter and folded the end over only once. Total cut length reduced from 19 inches to 15 1/2 inches.
I then had to sew the strap on the outside and make it a bit narrower.
I like the tri fold pattern idea. It makes it nice and compact.
I have a sneak peak of a kitty item I am making for Quilt Kitty. It is a surprise, so don't tell her :)
