Tea Party Basket

Tea Party Basket

A sweet girl I know has a tea set on her wish list.
It took me a month to gather it together and sew a few things.

The basket was thrifted for five dollars.
The liner is a very ugly country dark red so I tried to bleach it out.
It colored the whole load of whites a pretty light pink.
My usually white towels are pink.
Of course Chris and Oliver are not too keen with pink underwear.

The liner is a huge bonus with its pockets.

I spent $5.50 on the cups and saucers.
The basket was $5.
The napkins cost $12.
The fabric was from my stashes.
The tea set in the magazine cost $25
My tea party basket cost $22.50 + leg and hand work + a bit of imagination!



  1. Definitely one of the best tea sets ever Camille! And the beautiful beautiful lawn cloth goes with this? I love it all.
