Teabag Pouch

This time around in the Zakka 2.0 I am picking and choosing the projects. This teabag pouch is the first that I had picked to do. There  are so many gorgeous versions of this pouch already posted on the Zakka 2.0 Flickr page.

Ayumi's pattern did not come with any diagrams and some of the wording had me confused. My usual pattern trailblazer Amanda The Patchsmith has not yet made this one. You can see my mistakes and confusion here. Thank goodness Alyce came to my rescue.

Teabag Pouch Visual Tutorial
So here is a visual tutorial to help you should you be interested in making one for yourself.


I did not use fusible interfacing but some scraps of cotton batting and basting spray instead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4
Step 5

The crux of the pattern is not clear with the written instructions for this step -"the rectangle"  refers to the inner cotton solid for the interior. It took me a while to figure this out.
Step 6

Step 7

Step 8

Step 9 

Step 10

+ Button Making
I do hope that this helps. Certainly a cup of tea does after a tough pattern.

This is my paltry submission to the Kate Spain blog hop over at Blossom Heart Quilts. The fabrics are from Kate Spain's Good Fortune collection which I blogged about last Sunday Stash #68.


  1. Thanks Fiona for taking pictures along the way.

  2. Wow, this is so cute! I love the different fabrics and the cute little button. Great job!

  3. It's not paltry Fiona, it's lovely! Sometimes (usually?) the fiddly, little projects are the toughest! I love your fabric choices, well done!

  4. I'm definitely more of a visual learning person, so thank you for taking so many photos of the steps. I love how other bloggers are all ready and willing to help out :)

  5. It looks great Fiona! You definitely deserved that Scottish tea after that :)

  6. Lovely visuals! Very nice!

  7. Glad you got there it's a lovely pouch and I thoroughly approve your choice of tea.

  8. Lovely - I'm going to refer to this when I make mine!

  9. Oh my gosh, thank you so much for posting this! I really want to make one of these and was so confused with the instructions, you're a star! My entry into the Kate Spain linky was a bit paltry too but it was all I could manage in the time... :o)

  10. This is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing the tut - I will definately be making one of these.

  11. Thanks so much for sharing this. I rerad through the instructions and was so confused too. Pictures make it so much easier. Now i will definitely give it a go.
