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
