Tea Bag Art now explain that!! Have you ever seen some of that great primitive art made using “tea Bag” to give it that rustic old look? Well, I just recently joined National Quilter’s Circle (I recommend you check it out) and one of there videos is about “Tea Bag Art” how to manage your tea bags and how to use them.
When it comes to creating an art quilt, whether you are adding embroidery or other embellishments, painting on a quilt or quilting with old blankets or other fun fabric alternatives- anything goes! Heather Thomas shows you a fun way to incorporate teabag paper, along with fabric, into your next quilt.
Teabags Used In Quilting
Teabags come in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles, though they are generally all made from the same type of teabag paper. Heather shows you how to use this paper as a fun embellishment on a quilt. Once a teabag has been used, the paper can be dried. Heather shows several different ways the bag can be dried including being laid flat or bunched up. Both methods create a different look to the bag once it is dried. Another way to make the teabag paper look different is to either leave the tea in the bag while it dries or take it out. Heather shows examples of both.
