Fabric Pocket Tissue Covers Holders


I saw this on a blog and I wrote the directions down yesterday and I lost them today!
But the gist of it is I took a 7 x 7" piece of fabric (x2) and sewed them right sides together. Left an inch or so opening to allow for turning right side out.
Steam press the piece so all sides are nice and flat.
Tri Fold so the outer side is seen and pin the sides. (I used the same fabric inside and out on the ones below).
Sew up the sides paying attention to reverse stitch the whole way to give it more strength.
Turn right side out and insert the pack of pocket tissues. I was able to make 6 in an hour!
These are Christmas gifts and I will be making more to give out too.

Note: the top one I used satin fabric inside and did not overlap the opening as I did in the blue and purple ones.

These are so cute!!! A couple of Christmases ago, I made tons of these and they do make the greatest little gifts. Another idea is to use wide ribbon too; you measure the tissue pack, fold in each long end and just sew it down the sides! Easy-peezie!!!

Looks great!
