Easy Peasy Tissue Cover Tutorial






My hubby and I went to Target last night to pick up a few things and I grabbed some of the travel sized packs of Kleenex for this project.

My hubby says "Who are those for?"
Me -  "These are for the Moms at church on Sunday"
Him-  "I know we don't have much money, but can't we do better than that?"
I just laughed and said "Trust me".


These are so quick and easy to do. You can whip them up in no time.

1. Cut 4 rectangles 5 1/4" by 3 3/4".


2. Take 2 of the pieces and fold them in half lengthwise with wrong sides together and press.


3. Take remaining 2 rectangles and match them wrong sides together. Place the 2 pressed pieces on top with the folded edges toward the center.


4. Using a small stitch setting (I set my machine to 2), stitch around all 4 sides (1/4" seam allowance). I backstitch where the 2 folded edges meet. This is a stress point so it's good to have a bit of strength there.


5. Zig Zag around all 4 sides to keep the fabric from fraying and again, it adds a bit of strength.


6. Turn to the outside and gently push out the corners. You can press the tissue cover at this point if you want to. Insert a package of Kleenex and you're done!


And that's it! Easy Peasy!

  10. why not: cut 1x long rectangle with pinking sheers (no need to zig zag to prevent fraying). fold each of the short ends over (wrong sides together) & sew in place along short end (or not). fold short ends together (right sides together) so that they meet in the middle & sew along long ends, backstitching where the short sides meet for strength. flip inside out. tada! less sewing & less fabric.

  11. Thank you for the Easy Peasy Tissue Cover. Marieke, from the Netherlands.

  12. Hi Marieke! I was born in the Netherlands! Thanks for stopping by! You might need to change the measurements a bit to fit the travel packs of tissues in Europe. I think they are a bit different.

  13. Karen, You can make this even faster with just one piece of fabric! Make it long enough to go all around and enough to fold back the openings. Sew up the sides and turn! Woo-Hoo!
