Guest Post: Crochet Tea Bag




Today, we are featuring a crocheted project that was designed by a dear friend of ours! :)  This adorable little tea bag is the perfection addition to anyone's amigurumi collection. [If you don't know amigurumi, look it up on Pinterest!]  Any tea lover will get a smile out of this little guy.
 
I hope to be sharing some more crochet patterns on the blog this week. Keep an eye out!

 
Ch 12
Sc across (11)
Sc across other side of chain (22)
Sc around for 7 rounds (22)
Add face
Switch to white
Sc around with 2 dec (20)
Sc around with 1 dec (19)
Sc around with 2 dec (17)
Sc around with 2 dec (15)
Dec around with 1 sc
Stuff lightly-don't stuff too much or it won't have the right shape.
Flatten the top of the tea bag and sc across to close the hole (3-4)
Break yarn and weave it to the middle stich at top so it can be the "string."
Staple a piece of paper to the end to make the tag.
Update: Evenly space out the decreases.  Put some at the front of the tea bag, some on the sides, adn some in the back.  Don't put  them all in one spot.
PInch the sides and bottom of the tea bag to create the desired shape.
 
 
Please do not sell this pattern or the finished product in any way.
