DIY Fabric Tissue Case

Modesty Matters:  You CAN Sew!

These make great stocking stuffers or small gifts.  Quick & Easy! They’re great for your purse, diaper bag, or in the car. These could even be donated to a nearby church, nursing home or rehab facility. My daughter loved these and made some for all of her friends for Christmas.

Here are the things you will need to create these adorable tissue covers:  Three (3) identical pieces of fabric measuring 5½” by 3½” for the small,

(or 11 ½” by 7½” for the large), sharp scissors and a hem ruler.

Fold two (2) of the pieces in ½” along the long side and press.

Fold these two (2) pieces again (1″ for the small size, and 2½” for the large size) and press.

Overlap the folded edges on top of the bottom piece with right sides together.

Straight stitch all the way around the rectangle at ¼” seam allowance for the small and ” seam allowance for the large size.  Clip corners.

Turn right side out and insert tissue.

For the small, insert small tissue packets leaving on the plastic.

For the Large, remove the flat tissue from a box of about 100 two ply tissues.  Insert the tissue alone without the box.

I hope you enjoy these.  They are a great way for a young lady to make her own gifts for her friends, or even as a ministry donation.  Enjoy!

Merry Christmas!

This is an intermediate level DVD sewing course which serves as a great follow-up to the primer, “You CAN Sew.” In this one-semester course, we will be sharing a broad spectrum of techniques in order to give you a strong foundation of knowledge from which you can choose to more tenaciously develop one method or another through practice. The included book will become your favorite quilting companion book with an extensive glossary and a user-friendly format encouraging you to record your journey.
