Padded Tissue Pack Cover

Someone gave me a tissue pack cover once, and I thought it would be a nice little item to make for others as well.  I found an free easy tutorial by Two Brown Birds here.  I followed their instructions and made one, but it added batting to mine, and the result was a little tight for the Kleenex travel pack of tissues I had, so I made the next ones a little larger.  I like the new resulting little padded tissues covers.


 Here is the instructions I followed:

SUPPLIES:
- Piece of fabric for lining and accent.  Measure and cut at 5-3/4" x 8"
- Piece of fabric for outside.  Measure and cut at 5-3/4" x 6-3/4"
- Piece of batting.  Measure and cut at 5-3/4" x 6-3/4"

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Place the outside fabric, right-side facing up, on top of the piece of batting so that the size matches up.
  2. Place the piece of lining fabric, right-side facing down, centered on top o the other two pieces.
  3. Sew a 1/4" seam down both the shorter 5-3/4" sides.  The lining fabric will obviously be larger, but that is good!👍🏼
    Fabrics sewn together along shorter side.
  4. Turn the fabrics out and press it smooth.  The lining piece will show on the two shorter sides.
    Turn and press.
  5. Fold the shorter sides into the center so the lining piece is showing.  
  6. Pin and sew 1/4" seam along both shorter ends. 
    Sew along the shorter sides.
  7. I trim the stray threads, corners and edge to made a smooth edge when turned out.
    Trim threads and clip corners.
  8. Turn your cover inside out and you're done!
You can keep the tissues inside their plastic wrapper and just pop them inside the cover, with the package opening facing up.

Happy Stitching!

  1. I wanted to tell you that I love your tissue holder. I made a few of them for my quilt friends. And in return I have been asked for the pattern. I always make sure that your name and web site are included. I have a number of patterns for these but, your pattern comes out the winner. Thank you so much..
