‘Tis the season for sniffles. Which means it’s the perfect time to make this darling fabric tissue holder.
Scraps of bright print fabric are perfect for hiding unsightly tissue packs. Make them to match your room, your car, or your office.
These are so quick and simple to make. They make great gifts for teachers or work colleagues at Christmas time, and are also a nice little thought for a sick friend, or someone who is going on vacation….oh, and Mother’s Day or birthday gifts!
Not only is it practical and useful; it’s adorable! The beautiful coordination of fabric designs for each holder adds to the simplicity of making them. Don’t worry about having great sewing skills. If you can sew a relatively straight line using a straight and zigzag stitch, you’ll be all set to go!
I’m notorious for carrying kleenex packets in my purse and inevitably I end up giving the whole packet to a person who needs it, rather than just give them a couple of tissues! Or, the packet ends up mutilated and dirty in the bottom of my purse! Well, since I’ve had my little fabric tissue holder, I haven’t given away whole tissue packets, nor has it ended up messed up at the bottom of my purse! Issue solved! I just love these and there are so many fabulous fabrics at the fabric stores these days. I go crazy over all of the beautiful things that it takes me forever to get out of there. When I do, I find that I’ve spent more than I intended to!
Watch Jaime Malden make these in her step by step tutorial so you can start making these too!
