Ahhtishoo!! - Travel Tissue Cover
These are soooooo quick and simple to make. They make great gifts for teachers or work colleagues at Christmas time, and are also a nice little thought for a sick friend, or someone who is going on a holiday!
- Two cotton fabrics and matching thread.
First of all, cut a rectangle that measure 5 ½ “ x 6 ½ “ from the fabric that you have chosen for the outside of your tissue cover. Now, cut a second rectangle of fabric measuring 5 ½ “ x 7 ½ “ for the lining fabric (this fabric is also seen on the edges of the opening, so it’s nice to choose a fabric that co-ordinates well with your cover fabric).
Place the fabrics right side together, and sew a ¼” seam down both the, 5 ½” sides. As the lining fabric is larger than the outside over fabric, the piece that you have sewn won’t sit flat – THAT’S OKAY!! It means you’re doing it right!
