Tea Cup and Saucer Totes

In days gone by, when a woman wanted to have a tea party, she might not have enough teacup and saucer sets for all her guests. As a result, it was not uncommon for a guest to be asked to bring her own teacup and saucer--often carrying her treasure in a beautiful case for protection. In my shop, you will find several hand-crafted teacup and saucer totes for carrying your treasured tea cup and saucer to your next tea function. The totes pictured are some of my offerings.

Tea Cup and Saucer Tote
This sweet tea cup and saucer tote is a wonderful way to take your favorite tea cup and saucer to your next tea party. Two layers of high loft quilt batting offer protection from breakage. A padded plate liner in coordinating fabrics keeps the cup and saucer separated. Fully lined with a coordinating print. Bottom is reinforced with a plastic insert to provide support and further protection. Venise lace and a faux crystal button add a touch of romance. A drawstring closes the tote and provides a handle to carry your precious cargo. Holds a 6” saucer and tea cup. (Tea cup and saucer shown for display only and are not included.) An added bonus is a lovely coordinating, lace-trimmed napkin. No tea parties in the near future? It could also be used as a purse! Too sweet! Dimensions: 6 ½”w x 7”h
Directions for use: Insert saucer. Place padded liner on top of saucer. Place tea cup right side up on top of liner. Pull drawstring to close. Enjoy!
