Did you see our fabric coasters from fabric scraps tutorial? This tutorial is another scrap busting project. You don't need a big piece of fabric for this. You can even combine two or three coordinating fabric scraps to make this reversible tissue holder!
2 pcs. 6.5" x 11"
2 pcs. 3.75" x 11"
2 pcs. 4.0" x 11"
lace, bows, buttons, etc. to decorate
Get both 3.75" x 11" fabric pieces (different fabric prints), align the edges of one of the longer sides (right sides of the fabrics together) and sew straight stitches 1/4" away from the edge. Flip and topstitch.
Do the same to the remaining shorter pieces (4.0" x 11"). Before topstitching, I added a lace and have sewn it on.
Assemble both sewn fabric pieces overlapping the piece with the lace over the other piece. Pin where they both overlap (you can see the orange pin on the left side of the photo ^^)
Sew straight stitches on the overlapping area, 3" away from each edge so you ill be left with a 5" opening.
Assemble your tissue holder by pinning all pieces together.
Sew straight stitches on all sides and clip the tips.
Turn inside-out and sew straight stitches on all sides.
Now you have a tissue holder.
The other side.
This colorful tissue holder is mine and is in my car. It's so useful! I love the satin bows I added on it and the bright colors! ^^)
Why not make one for your mom for mother's day?
