In addition to the materials required for the Perky Note Card Holder you will also need a piece of 5 1/2″ X 7″ fusible interfacing to give the wallet more structure. And if you would like to use the birdie template as I have, click here to download the Tea Wallet Placement Pattern.
Follow the basic directions from the Perky Note Card Holder, with a few minor changes. After Step 2 line up the inside pockets on the inside Wallet piece of felt. I held my pieces in place with packaging tape. Then mark the center line on the pockets with a vanishing marker and sew a running stitch on the center line on the pockets. This will give you four individual pockets when your wallet is complete.
While completing Step 8 sandwich the inside and outside pieces together with the fusible interfacing in the middle. Be sure to keep interfacing centered so that you have a 1/4″ border around the interfacing (this will make your blanket stitch much easier). Press with a warm iron just enough to get it to stick.
Instead of adding the 3×5 cards in Step 10, add four of your favorite individually wrapped tea bags. Now you can carry your favorite teas with you.
(PS – this is my stitching not my mother’s… sigh someday maybe my stitches will be as even as hers. LOL!)
