  • Standard sewing supplies

What you Need Tissue Holder

Step 1: Make a Pocket Tissue Holder

Cut your fabrics to the designated sizes. I used some scrap fabrics that I had on hand. In my example the red and white fabric is the outer fabric and the solid red is the lining fabric. You will notice that the lining fabric is larger than the outer fabric. This is done on purpose.

Step 2: Make a Pocket Tissue Holder

With right sides together sew the lining piece to the outer piece at the short ends using a 1/4″ seam allowance. You will notice that there will be a difference in lengths of the long sides. Don’t worry. This will make sense when you press the fabric.

Step 3: Make a Pocket Tissue Holder

Turn the piece right sides out and press flat so that there is 1/4″ of the lining showing on each side of the outer fabric. There is a lot of pressing in this project and in all sewing projects.

Step 4: Make a Pocket Tissue Holder

Fold the long edges so that the meet in the center of the piece and press. You should only be seeing the lining fabric at this point.

Step 5: Make a Pocket Tissue Holder

Stitch along the short ends. I used an overlock stitch on my regular sewing machine for this to protect the raw edges but you can use a straight stitch and follow it up with a zig zag or just keep it raw. It is totally up to you.

Step 6: Make a Pocket Tissue Holder

Turn the piece right sides out and put in your tissues and you have completed your pocket tissue holder.
