Tea Bag Wallet


This is a quick project I am crocheting for one of the Hostess Gifts at our Ladies Banquet this Saturday evening at our church.

I first crocheted this Tea Bag Wallet when I received the “Defining Crochet” Summer 2012 issue.


The Tea Bag Wallet is a great gift. It helps you to carry your tea and sugar on the go in a cute little pouch. It is an easy skill level – making it great for beginners and is crocheted using an E hook.

The bag itself is composed of single crochet (Single Crochet), double crochet (Double Crochet) and single crochet decreases (Single Crochet Decrease). I used a sport yarn from my stash which can easily be done because it only uses 150 yards of yarn. The finished measurements are 3 1/4 x 3 inches making it really easy to fit into a pocket or a purse. This is my fourth time crocheting this item as a gift, so as you can see, I enjoy making this as a gift. I always insert a Twinings tea bag and some sugar inside the wallet before presenting the Tea Bag Wallet as a gift.

Next project is Annie’s Hook & Needle Club Easy Spring Hat. Cannot wait to see it on my granddaughter.

Until next time, Keep those hooks flying.


About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.

    That is cool and would be a nice item to have on hand over here in Japan. Would have been a great gift for our ladies’ tea next weekend. Do you know how I might be able to locate the directions? (I know you can’t share yours.)

  3. Lisa, I am really sorry I can not post the instructions for the Tea Wallet on my blog. I can however tell you where you may obtain one. It was in the “Defining Crochet” Summer 2012.
