How to Make Wool Felt Tea Bags for Imaginative Play
Another video tutorial to inspire some creative making. In this video I will teach you how to make some waldorf inspired tea bags for imaginative kitchen play.
Materials you will need:
Wool Felt or some kind of felted wool – In the video I use a piece of an old woollen blanket
Cotton string/ twine for the cord – some kitchen string will work perfectly
Embroidery threads – to stitch a little design on the front of the bag
Loose herbal teas OR millet – for stuffing your tea bags (I bake the millet at a low heat for about an hour)
Fabric scraps – for the end of your tea bag
Wool felt scraps – if you’d like to create a more 3D effect on your tea bags (like the little leaves I have done)
