Just in time for Mother’s Day this travel tissue holder will bring a smile to her face. With only 4 straight seams, it makes a great project for kids to sew too.
- 2 Coordinating fabrics or scraps of fabric
- Pocket Tissue pack (I used Kleenex Brand)
1/4″ seam allowance
Cut the outside fabric to measure 6″x 61/2″
Cut the inside fabric to measure 6″x71/2.” the inside will be wider, this is what makes the trim when we turn it right side out.
Your fabrics will look like this
Sew the 6″ sides right sides together. There will be a bubble since the lining fabric is wider.
Turn the fabrics right side out and press flat so that there is a 1/4 trim on each side.
Now press the fabrics in half, trim sides together. This will help us find the middle.
Now fold both sides to the middle and pin in place.Sew across the top and bottom edges.
Trim any look threads and turn inside out. You can use a chop stick or other tool to make the corners nice and sharp.
Press it flat and insert a travel kleenex pack inside.
Perfect for gifts. Enjoy!
