TEA BOX


For the past several months I have been saving the little packages that tea bags come in. I have also had some friends saving some for me, they have been wondering what I am going to do with them.
Using a technique that I learned from SueB. I started with black felt and Misty-fuse and layered and fused dyed cheese cloth, tea envelopes, skeleton leaves and some interesting threads. Over the top I fused a layer of netting and then added some more stitching.
I then cut the sides, top and bottom for the box out of Timtex and bonded the fabric I had created to the Timtex. With some stitching around the edges I put the pieces together in to a box.
