It's not a bib

After spending my lunch hour cutting all my bib stuff, and then staying late for a meeting, when I got home last night I just couldn't get into it. Of course I wanted to make something, I needed the creative release, but what? Start back in on the quilt pieces I had cut . . . . too hard. Do the bib? I just wasn't that into it.

So what did I make? Tea wallets!

Well technically not wallet(s), as I just made one. I even stopped at Walmart on the way to work to get a pretty button to finish it off (yes I told you before I'm obsessive right). Super cute and easy to whip up. A nice little gift for someone, like me, who loves tea but is a little picky about what you can get while having dinner somewhere.

I also thought they would be great as little pressies for a bridal shower, like a grown up tea party with the right fabric could match the theme of the wedding? Am I completely off?
