What you will Need:

What you will Need: Tissue Box Cover

Step 1: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Measure the top of the box and add 1 1/4″ to width and the length. Measure Each side of the box and again add 1 1/4″ to the width and height. My measurements for the standard Kleenex box were 4 3/8″ square on the top and 4 3/8″ x 5″ on the sides. I added 1 1/4″ to each of these measurements to get the final numbers of 5 5/8 square on the top and 5 5/8″ X 6 1/4″ on the sides.

Step 2: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Cut the five pieces you just measured from both the outer and lining fabrics. If you are going to use interfacing fuse it to you outer fabric pieces now. If you are unfamiliar with interfacing it is a product that you can use to provide more structure to your fabric. One side of the interfacing has glue on it and the other side does not. Line up the glue side with the wrong side of your fabric and press with a hot iron until the glue fuses with the fabric and the two pieces can be treated as one. You can also follow the instructions on the interfacing itself. For this project I would recommend Pellon SF 101

Step 3: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Lay the top of the box wrong side up. Take the cardboard oval from the tissue box and place it in the center and draw around it. My oval was not a complete oval but I filled in the empty space to make it an oval for ease in sewing.

Draw the Oval

Step 4: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Place the two top pieces right sides together and sew around the oval you just drew. Cut around the inside of the oval leaving 1/4″ then clip the curves.

Cut the Oval and Clip the Curves

Step 5: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Turn the top right side out through the hole you just created and press.

Turn the Pieces Right Sides Out

Step 6: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Join the sides together by starting 5/8″ down from the height and stitching to the bottom using a 5/8″ seam allowance. Do this for the outer fabric and then for the lining fabric.

Sew the Sides Together

Step 7: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Sew the outer top fabric to the outer sides and the lining top to the lining sides with right sides together. Pin the lining out of the way to avoid getting it caught while you sew the outer fabric.

Sew the Sides to the Top

Step 8: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Turn the lining to the inside of the box cover. Turn the bottom edges of the outer fabric and the lining 5/8″ so they are facing. Press. Topstitch all around the hem and you have completed your fabric tissue box cover.
