Sweet Little Tissue Holders

I love these little tissue holders and have wanted to make one for some time. I found a super easy tutorial on Skip to My Lou. Honestly I used the tutorial once and didn't need it again. So easy. Here's mine: Cut 2 pieces of fabric 6 1/2" x 7" each and iron Place right sides together and sew around the edges using a 1/4" seam. Be sure to leave a 1 1/2" opening for turning. (I'm sorry about the poor quality of the above photo. They get better.) Turn out and use your scissors to help push out the corners. Iron again. Fold edges in towards the middle. Allow them to overlap about 1/4" Sew 1/4" seam down both sides. (This will close your gap from turning it right side out.) Turn right side out. Add embellishments if you a little extra. Fill with travel tissue pack. How simple is that?! Love it!

that is really cute! So much better than the boxes of tissue that try to be decorative, but never end up being so! I might have to try this one!
