Imaginative Play Fabric Tea Bags.....

What a year it has been! Tomorrow Sarah turns one, and there is very little she needs or requires so the Ben and I opted not to buy her a gift and instead I have made a very simple little something for her.

At just one year old she is very much a girl and likes a tea party, pretending to stir a spoon in a cup and pretends to feed herself and everyone else in the family. So to extend on her and Cohen's imaginative play I have made some fabric tea bags from vintage fabric scraps, denim and a few other bits and pieces.






I also made up up a little lace trimmed mini tablecloth using a thrifted pillowcase, with thrifted lace trim. The two little napkins are again made from a thrifted pillowcase, The two cloth tea bags used up denim and fabric scraps and some elastic and so super simple to make

I'm looking forward to tomorrow as the Ben is taking the day off, so we will be having some family fun. We are planning are little afternoon drive up to Mount Tambourine for some tea and cake.

The tea bags are gorgeous - you've inspired me to whip some up to go with my daughter's tea set collection!
