Here in Belfast we are completely freezing cold and the snow has been falling. As beautiful as the snow is it does make us think of warmer climates and about taking a trip far far away. We happened upon this tutorial and thought it was perfect as the fabric reminds us of travel and it’s a holder for tissues which are an absolute must during this weather. We found it over at A spoon full of sugar and should definitely give it a go.
- 6 1/4 x 5 3/4 inches (Main Fabric – Eiffel Tower)
- 2 1/4 inch x 5 3/4 inch (Contrasting Fabric – Polka Dot)
- 8 x 5 3/4 inch (Lining Fabric – white)
- 1 1/2 inch of striped ribbon, 3/4 inch wide
- 6 inch mini pom pom trim (optional)
- Travel pack of tissues
Stitch the smaller rectangle (polka dot) to the larger rectangle (Eiffel Towers) along the 5 3/4 inch edge to form the front cover. Press. Fold the ribbon in half, and baste it in place, 1 inch from the top left hand side as shown in the photo.
With the right sides facing, layer the tissue cover on top of the white lining. Pin together. Stitch together along the top and bottom edges using a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Turn out the right way. Press.
The Tissue Covers are sized to hold a small pack of travel tissues. They are great to have on hand in your school bag, hand bag, or suitcase. Of course, I couldn’t stop at one and made up a few to use when travelling.
Pretty perfect isn’t it?
