Cloth Tea Bags

The latest little project that I finished was cloth tea bags. I considered buying some of these a while ago, but then decided I could make them instead! They were a super quick and easy project, which is the best kind - (almost) instant gratification! =)

I had originally made a couple with cotton cooking twine (which is pictured), but after trying it out, discovered that it acted like a wick, sucking up the water, and I ended up with a puddle on the counter after seeping the tea. So I found a thin string at the craft store and used that, which seemed to take care of the problem. These work really well, can be tossed in the wash, and are great for really fine teas that tend to come out the holes of metal strainers.
