Tea Cup Purse

Yesterday I went and had a sewing day with Catherine from Catalina's Cottage.
I was feeling rather unwell so I sat on her couch and did a crochet square while she made a Tilda Lavendar Wing. I have a virus of some sort and I was enjoying very much sitting in front of her fire, chatting and watching the movie Enid.

When I got home I took some Brufen to dull the incredible unwell feeling I had. I felt rather inspired by Catherine.. her love of sewing and creating, last night I decided to make something that has been on my to do list for a very long time.

I spotted a tutorial for these teacup purses about 18months ago. You know how it goes, you download these patterns and never get around to making them. Well, this wasnt a pattern, you had to draw that up yourself. I just think they are so cute. This one is made from a Timeless Treasures fabric. The Teacup has teacups and the little bag has cakes. Inside the little bag is teabags.

This could be used as a coin purse for a little girl 

I decided to make this as I didnt have any teabags wrapped separately. Just a very simple bag with a ribbon attached.

The inside of the little purse.

I will be making some more. They are quick and simple to make. I just wish I had alot more friends that liked to have cups of tea. 

I have been doing a bit of crochet as I said. I am making 4in squares with crochet flowers in the middle.. These will probably be made into a bag. Watch the space for that. 

Take care

Isn't Cat such a sweetie! I love your tea bag. Cute fabric as well. I hear your crochet is very beautiful indeed. I hope you feel much better very soon, there's nothing worse than feeling awful.

OHHH Lisa, Sorry that you are not feeling very well. But sounds like being at a friends house sitting beside the fire and crocheting is a good start to feeling better. I just love your tea cup bag and the material is just beautiful. And guess what i just love a cup of tea and i have one sitting here right now in my roses mug while i am reading blogs and i would love to be one of your friends as i consider you one of my cyber friends.
Big Hugs

That is a lovely little bag. I've never sewn a zip in anything and after seeing your bag I am very tempted!
