Tutorial: Laminated Cotton Tissue Holders

 I make these for Big Sister's teachers each year.  I use laminated cotton since it is easy to wipe off- you know germs and such.   This year I am using a favorite Michael Miller fabric- Dick and Jane!

Step 1:  Trim to 5 1/2" x 8".

Step 2:  Fold over twice and iron each 5" end (be sure to use a scrap piece of cloth).

Step 3:  Sew hems.

Step 4:  Fold each end into the center serge or zig zag edges.

Step 5:  Sew sides 1/4" from the ends to strengthen stitching (see contrasting brown thread in picture).

Step 6: Turn each side right side out, pushing corners out firmly

Step 7:  Fill and Give!

I also sell these in my etsy shop- Lila's Bowtique
