So the funny story goes her MIL only has organic fruity tea...we are both tea drinkers but good old Earl Gray or Breakfast Blend. Nothing fancy for us! Since we are 'normal' tea drinkers (not to offend those who drink other kinds) she started to carry a baggie with her with tea bags and sugar, she was ready to go. She takes that baggie everywhere.
I recieved this sewing calender (find it here) for Christmas and one of the days was a tea wallet holder! Could you believe it, guess who instantly came to mind...you guessed it B! She NEEDED one. I had to make it in a sunny yellow (her fav.) And so I did. The directions were super easy! I just loved the way it came out-I hope she loved it and will enjoy it.
