Small Tissue Holder

Two pieces of coordinating cotton fabrics
Sewing Machine


Step 1:

Select two coordinating cotton fabrics. This is a great project for reducing your scrap fabric stash.

For the outside of the tissue holder, cut a piece of fabric that measures 6” x 6”.

For the lining of the tissue holder, cut a piece of fabric that measures 6” x 8”.

Place the fabrics right sides together, aligning the 6” sides of outer fabric and lining fabric. Pin.

Step 3:
Sew sides using a 1/4” seam.

Press the seams toward main fabric. Then press the fabric flat so that you have approximately 1/2” of the lining fabric showing on each side.

Using a 1/4" seam, sew one of the long sides. On the other long side, sew ¼” from the edge but leave a 2” opening in the middle. This opening will be used to turn the fabric right side out.

Turn the fabric right side out though the opening and press flat. Make sure to press the opening to the inside.

With main fabric facing up, fold the short edges to the center overlapping about 1/4”. Pin in place.

Sew along each end using a scant 1/4” seam. A scant 1/4" seam is a seam which is a little less than 1/4 inch.
