INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1: FABRIC SELECTION & CUTTING

Small Tissue Holder - Fabric This project is a great way to reduce your scrap fabric stash. From your scrap stash (or purchase fabric) select two complimentary cotton fabrics. From the fabric you want on the outside of the tissue holder, cut a piece that measures 6" x 6". From the other fabric, cut a piece that measures 6" x 8". The 6" x 8" piece is the lining and small border around tissue cover opening.

STEP 2: SEWING PIECES TOGETHER

Small Tissue Holder - Sewing Together With the two fabrics right sides together, aligning the 6” sides together and pin in place.

Sew the sides using a 1/4" seam. After sewing the piece should resemble the following picture.

STEP 3: PRESSING

Small Tissue Holder - Pressing Take the sewn piece to the ironing board and press the seams toward the main fabric. Then, press the fabric flat so that you have approximately 1/2” of the lining fabric showing on each side.

STEP 4: SEWING

Small Tissue Holder - Sewing and Opening At the sewing machine, sew one long side closed using a 1/4" seam. 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.



STEP 5: TURNING RIGHT SIDE OUT

Small Tissue Holder- Turning Fabric Carefully turn the fabric right side out though the opening. Press the fabric flat, making sure to tuck and press the opening seam to the inside.

STEP 6: FOLDING

Small Tissue Holder - Folding Sides On a flat surface put the piece with the main fabric (outside fabric) facing up. Fold the short sides to the center overlapping them about 1/4”. Pin to hold them in place.

STEP 7: SEWING

Small Tissue Holder - Sewing Seam 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.

STEP 8: FINISHING UP

Small Tissue Holder - Finished Tissue Holder Turn the tissue cover right side out and poke out the corners.
