What you will Need: How to Make Reusable Tea Bags

  • 5 x 3 1/2″ piece of pre-washed cotton, muslin, or gauze
  • 2 buttons
  • 12-inch piece of cotton string or embroidery thread
  • Standard Sewing Supplies

What you will Need Tea Bag

Step 1: Wash your Fabric

Before you start this project make sure that wash, dry and press your fabric. Fabric contains sizing in it and you want to make sure that all of that sizing is washed out.

Step 2: Add the buttons

Using a hand needle sew one end of the thread ( I used embroidery floss for mine) through the back of the button and back through the front. Tie the string in a knot. Repeat for the second button on the other end of the string.

Step 3: Create the casing

Fold the short edges of the fabric in by 1/8″ and press. Then fold down one of the long sides of your fabric by 1/4″ and press. Fold again by 1/2″ and press again. Lay your string inside the casing so that it centered. Stitch along the casing edge using a 1/8″ seam allowance. Make sure not to stitch over the string.

Step 4: Stitch the Tea Bag Together

Place the tea bag right sides together and pin. Stitch the bag closed along the folded and raw edges without sewing over the string. Back stitch at the top of the tea bag for support. Turn right sides out. Add your tea and insert the bag into a cup of hot water for a nice cup of tea.
