During this time of year, I feel like every minute needs to be planned out correctly, or I won’t get everything done for the holidays! The meaning of “Tea Proudly” to me is taking time to relax with a hot cup of Bigelow Constant Comment tea in my favorite mug while doing things that I love to do and that make me feel proud. This gives me time to reflect on my day and to soak up the magic of the season before it is over. I’m sharing these fun plaid tea coasters I made with fun sayings on them, such as “Tea Proudly”, “Tea Time” and “But First Tea”.
TeaProudly is a celebration for taking pride in the little things. Just a quiet moment with the perfect warm cup of Constant Comment tea in my hands under a warm blanket with one of my favorite books gives me enjoyment! I also enjoy small chunks in my day when I can carve out time for myself to do a little crafting, such as making these tea coasters. It is nice and comforting to enjoy a warm drink, such as Constant Comment while I work on something I’m proud of. Bigelow takes pride in everything they do. Their consumers know when they drink Bigelow, they TeaProudly!
Constant Comment is a nice blend of black tea, rind of oranges and sweet spice. It’s the perfect warm cup of tea to enjoy this time of year, or anytime for that matter!
How to Make Cozy Fabric Embroidery Hoop Coasters
Making these coasters was easy, inexpensive and you can use your favorite fabric. I smile every time I place a mug of Constant Comment tea on them!
First, you’ll want to stop into your local Walmart and find Bigelow Constant Comment tea in the tea aisle.
For this craft, you’ll need:
- Bigelow Constant Comment tea (to enjoy during/after you make the coasters!)
- 3 Small Embroidery Hoops
- Cutting Scissors
- Heat Transfer Vinyl
For these tea coasters, I cut out the vinyl sayings for them with a cutting machine. First, I measured the embroidery hoops to see how large my font needed to be and then I laid it out in my cutting machine’s software. Next, I mirrored the image, so that it will be facing the right way once I iron it onto the fabric. I selected a glittery gold heat transfer paper and cut it out on the machine.
Once the machine is done, you’ll remove the gold heat transfer paper that is around and inside all of the letters. Place your letters face down on your fabric and cover with a thin piece of fabric and press down the iron on it to adhere the letters to the fabric. Once you have applied enough heat, remove the iron and pull away the clear backing and your vinyl will have adhered to the fabric! I then iron over it once more.
Place the fabric inside the embroidery hoops and cut the fabric around the edges. You now have the cutest embroidery hoops to place your tea mug on!
