Supplies:

  • 2 Coordinating fabrics or scraps of fabric
  • Pocket Tissue pack (I used Kleenex Brand)

Instructions:

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.
