Quick Little Gift

Isn’t this a dandy little tea bag case!  My friend Suzanne Sawko just made a dozen of these as favors for a tea her daughter is hosting.

Though she made twelve, each was personalized with a monogram, making the gift especially nice.

Many years ago, Mildred Turner and I traveled together a good bit.  We both enjoyed a nice cup of Bigelow Earl Grey tea, but few of the airport or hotel restaurants we frequented carried it.  I found two small, inexpensive crazy patch ultrasuede zipper pouches that we used to carry our own supply.  We used those until they fell apart.  This is so much nicer–I should make one for Mildred.

The pattern was purchased from Moose B Stitchin, a site whose specialty is in-the-hoop projects.  Suzanne reports that the instructions were fabulous and the tea bag case stitched out perfectly.

We’re all down to the wire now, with Christmas around the corner.  I think this is a great last minute gift that could be whipped up in a short time.  Even without an embroidery machine, a similar little case could be stitched.

After having all three grandchildren here for a few absolutely wonderful days, I am even further behind than usual.  I’ll probably have to shelf some of my more elaborate gift projects and go for quick and easy.

Do you have a favorite last minute holiday project?  Please share any recommendations.  I think I am going to need some.
