The Cup of Tea Catchall is made of high-quality felt. Craft felt is also suitable, and there’s a layer of stabilizer between the layers to provide extra structure and lasting power.

Add an embroidery design of your choice, or choose form the six designs included in the adorable Cup of Tea Machine Embroidery Collection – a Sulky exclusive. This collection is great for Valentine’s Day gifts, Mother’s Day gifts or anytime you want to show a little love! Grab the Cup of Tea collection WITH the 10 thread spools you need, as the Cup of Tea Machine Embroidery Palette, for a great price.

The featured in-the-hoop appliqué design collection contains six appliqué embroidery designs. Follow the color sequence chart included with the design files for fabric placement, stitching and cutting sequences. Duckbill appliqué scissors are a MUST to prevent the scissor tips from piercing the fabric during the in-the-hoop appliqué process.



Head on over to to grab the pattern today! You’ll be making these little felt boxes for all kinds of holidays, gifts and rooms in your house.

Try reducing or enlarging the pattern to make them in different sizes, too! The included size is 2″ deep, which stands up nicely due to the stabilizer and felt weight.
