Embroidered Tea Bags Now for Sale

I have been playing about with unusual Up- Cycling.  I did not know if it was possible to stitch into a tea bag, heck I didn’t think you could even draw on one let alone stitch into it.  As delicate as it is, it is possible.

Round Used Tea bag with a stitched Pansy.

This was my second attempt as the first one did not work out to well.  I just drawing basic lines as guide to where to start stitching.  You can’t create to many hole as the bag does just fall apart so you tend to use the same hole a few times, the more you stitch the more stable the bag becomes.
