Show and Tell Monday at Make Mine Pink

It's Monday morning and that means it's Show and Tell time at Make Mine Pink!

I have been busy with family things this weekend--travelled to College Station to go to my nieces' graduation party--one from high school and one from college. Then, I had to turn around and head home for a bridal shower--the first of this generation... I wish I had pictures to show, but I don't.

However, I do have a new Tea Cup Tote that I finished last week. I have had the fabric for awhile, but just never had made anything with it. Last week, I ran across it again and decided it needed to be a Tea Cup Tote. This one is OOAK. Have a look:
I added a little pocket on the back for carrying a packet or two of sweetner or perhaps a tea bag.

Love, love, love that fabric! I purchased a few yards a while back and never found a project worthy of it. I see that you did!
Just gorgeous!

I have some of that fabric too. I haven't been able to cut it up yet because it's so pretty (I have that problem with fabric). You did a wonderful job with this and made the fabric even prettier!

Your teacup tote is absolutely gorgeous.... I've never seen anything like surely are a talented designer.

Beloved Creations said...

That is such a great idea. I use sweet&low and lot of resturants don't carry it so I am always fishing in my purse for some. Ohhh, maybe a personalized tea caddy would be a nice idea!

Karen, I absolutely positive this is my ALL TIME favorite tote you have made. I love this fabric so much. I have two pillows made out of it.

Love, love, love it.

Oh how I wish my Moma could see this, she always carried a fine china cup in her handbag when she went out to dinner.She carried it in a velvet bag. I thought she was nutty but she just loved the feel of a good china cup. It had to feel just right on her lips. That was my moma. She would have loved this carrier.
Nice work. Lilli

I wish I could sew like that. Alas, it is not meant to be. Love the pocket with the tea bags peeking out. The fabric is beautiful. People need beauty around them. I really believe this.
