It's Tea Time!

Hi and Happy Monday everybody, this is Vanessa having the honour to post a project today!

I love tea. I always did - never drank any coffee before I was like 23 or so. Now I finally bought the adorable "Tea for Two" set and don't know what took me so long! Couldn't wait to ink it up and wanted to create something special. So I made this:

I sewed this tea cosy and made two tea pot appliqués, stamping the image onto the floral fabric, cutting it out and ironing one on each side of the cosy.

Then I tried to create matching teapots on paper for the bag and the card. To achieve this I used images from the "Turning a New Leaf" set and "Beautiful Blooms" set. The glassine bag contains my new favourite herbal tea, called "Happiness" (and it works!!).

That's it. I hope you like my little set!

Have a great week everybody! And thanks again to Aimes and Kate, it's so exciting to post here!

Vanessa xx

I have this set too and I also love it a lot. Your set looks good! I'll have to case it as a friend who drinks only tea has her birthday on Saturday and this would look good as a present.
