Halloween Costume: Teabag

(Used with permission by

"For my teabag costume, I purchased a few yards of Crinoline, a couple yards of cording and a box of Lipton teabags. I cut out two huge rectangles the same size. I then laid one on top of the other and sewed the sides and bottom.

Open up the top and fill about 1/3 with dried leaves. Fold the top in on both corners making a point and fold down like the top of a teabag. Cut off the top of the teabag box and shape like the paper tag of a teabag. Hot melt glue to 1 yard of the cording and then sew the cord to the top of the bag.

I made two complete bags and attached them with fabric straps at the top so that I could just throw it over my head. I wore a long sleeve black shirt, black tights and black shorts under it and carried a teapot and large strainer!"

I like it. Carrying a teapot is also handy with these tea costumes if there are any party favors. Are they going to hand out anything? Collect them in your teapot like you're trick-or-treating. --Teaternity
