Tutorial: Pretty Pocket Tissue Holders

felt tissue holders

I created this pattern, thinking that I'd make one 
pretty pocket tissue holder to give to my mom on her birthday.

**a little something extra to go along with our pedicures and lunch out**

--And here we are, three pretty pocket tissue holders later.--

They're just so fun to make.

Make a stack and give them out for Easter or just because. 

2 pieces of felt
sewing machine
miscellaneous scraps of fabric and buttons for embellishing
scissors (pinking shears optional)
needle and thread for hand-sewing embellishments

1. Cut each piece of felt into a rectangle 6-1/4" x 7-1/4".

2. Optional: Trim your edges with pinking shears by cutting right along the edge. I trimmed mine slightly shorter on the top piece.

3. Lay your felt rectangles on top of each other and place a travel pack of tissues (with plastic removed) in the center.

4. Fold the left side on top, then the right side. Hold in place with your finger.

5. Pin the top layers together on both sides. You don't need to pin to the bottom layers.

6. Remove your tissues and sew the sides together (top and bottom layers) with 1/2" seams.

7. Embellish however you like. You might want to embellish the top layer before sewing the sides together. I did both ways-- it's a personal-preference thing.

For personal use only, please.
