Everything stops for tea

I've finished sewing some book bags and lavender bags intended for relatives in Germany - my mother is planning a trip there and wanted to give them some idiosyncratically British gifts. The vast quantities of Union Jack merchandise currently on sale in these parts didn't quite seem appropriate, so I went for an English Afternoon Tea theme instead. I found some pretty teacup print fabric by Clarke & Clarke in a local furnishing fabric shop and used 'Everything Stops for Tea' motto ribbon as a trimming (The Ribbon Reel has a great selection of trims).
   My aunts and cousin are expert and exacting needleworkers, so fingers crossed that these gifts to them pass muster!
