Tea Bag Wallet




My mum's birthday is in August and she is visiting this weekend. I knew when Nathalie swapped me this butterfly fabric a while ago that my mum would love it....I just had to decide what to make with it. Charlotte who blogs over at Displacement Activity has a great tutorial to make a tea bag wallet, very easy and quick to make, but looks very impressive. Well I think so anyway.



This week there has also been some Bramble and Apple jelly making....after picking 3kg on a long walk. Last year I didn't make any until late September, so this is much earlier, but the berries weren't as juicy. I even squeezed the bag to get more juice, as Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall suggested, but still not as much as last year.



The first lot of fabric has turned up from Sarah, from the HipBee and so now I have to put my thinking head on and make sure I don't mess up on my first month in the Bee.
