Tea-bag Embroidery Overlocker

fill bags with tea and sew them up nicely
  [vote for,

Tea-bag Embroidery Overlocker comes in three parts:
1 There is the machine itself which looks like an overlocker with multiple colours of thread available on spools.
2 Feeding into the machine is the roll of unsewn teabags which take the form of a continuous tube.
3 A series of hoppers hold a variety of different types of tea.

Using the machine is a semi-automated process that begins with tea selection. Once the tea of choice has been selected, the operator swivels its hopper into place, ready to deliver the correct portion of fresh leaves into the bag which the machine is about to construct.

Pressing the next button carries out several actions in sequence. A measured section of tea-bag material is stitched across the width of the fabric, then filled with the pre-selected tea of choice. (If there is to be any decorative embroidery work applied to the bag it is carried out prior to this filling stage.)

Once the embroidery is completed, the bag is stitched again along its top edge to seal it, then cut free from the roll from where it drops unto a cup ready to be joined by boiling water.

       Bun if it could it be integrated into a Teasmade.

       I want another sewing machine, but I'd envisioned something a bit heavier than this, something that could sew your arm to a tire or something. But I'd buy the finished product.

       Over here, we can buy teabags already filled with tea. Even the Welsh have these.

       Yes, but this could be like getting custom hand loads - which you probably also have.   

       I'm just opening a locally made gin, and cracking the seal on a bottle of tonic. I'm betting you have those also.

       Not to be confused with overclocking, which you're probably familiar with.

       Is the bag supposed to be made of cloth ?
