Tea time

Here's my first go at making something out of tea bags ...


I'm really not at all sure what to call it, nor do I have any sense of what to do with it ...


except maybe just leave it where the light can shine through ...


And don't you just love Deb Lacativa's Dirty Threads?

such beautiful stitching, Deb's wild threads are perfect for this piece!

Thanks Mo! I’m so pleased Deb will be dyeing more threads in the spring ...

lovely, I like the sun shining through the tea bags, I cannot believe you were able to stitch them together- the only thing I have done with tea bags is paint on them

Love the translucence of tea bags. Your 3 dimensional construction allows for lots of light and viewpoints.
And the threads are gorgeous.

Liz A said...

Susan and Roxanne - Thanks for coming by. Now I find myself saving more tea bags and wondering what's next.

The light through the tea bags gives a "plaid effect." Fascinating. Yes, Deb's magic threads are just that: magic. Hoping to acquire more this year.

It's so beautiful with the light going thru it! Congrats on finishing so quickly. And yes, Deb's threads look great!

LA - I love the experimentation; and the light shining through the 'thingy'. B

Sue - the plaid was totally unplanned ... and all the more fascinating for simply appearing

Deb - this one flew off my fingers for the sheer fun of it

Barry - and now I'm contemplating coating it with beeswax after reading Fiona's recent post

Jude - I’m tempted to call it paper-full piecing ...
