TeaBag Embroidery

You can, of course, embroider on anything. Here, I used some old teabags - dried out, cut and ironed flat, tacked (or stuck) on to a piece of calico backing, then machine and some hand embroidery.  I also added a small piece of burnt metal in the centre.  I pierced small holes through the metal, which was thin, and stitched it on to the fabric.  -  Very satisfying bit of recycling.
