tea party

Yesterday my daughter went to a birthday party:
a fancy tea party.

So I decided to make as a present for the birthday girl
supplies for felt tea party at home.
requirement:
-tea (bags, this is not the UK!)
-cookies
-fruit
-chocolate
-some container to keep it all

so here is my version of a tea party!


The tea bags are based on a few designs that I have been seeing on flickr felt group
I combined different parts from different people's vision to make my own version.
As you can tell, I like green tea!
I used tule for the bag, I cut leaves for the inside and the tag.
The string is cotton yarn , and for safety reason it is less than 6 inch.

I found the pattern for the chocolate bunnies at


I changed the eyes a little, the white part is stitched on with the blue floss,
I did a French knot, of course!


The little cake is made using the new TV show: DIY dish
http://www.thediydish.com/


It is rolled felt on the inside (strawberry/vanilla), recovered with icing
and with some cream on the top!

I also made my favorite cookies


and some strawberries.

For the tray/basket, I used 2 fabric, some ribbons and some iron-on fleece.


I started with a square about 12 inch, removed 4 squares in each corner,
 around 2.5 inch, whatever the high of the tray you are interested in.
I ironed on the fleece.
I stitched the 8 pieces of ribbon.
Then with right sides together, I stitched both fabric around, leaving an opening.
I clipped the corners and the inside of the corners.
I returned the fabric, ironed it and hand stitched.
To help the edges stand up, I stitched along the lignes through all layers.
Here is a view of the flaten tray.

 

It would be all that is needed for a tea party with friends,
after all it should feed 4.
The birthday girl liked very much!




Happy sewing!
