This is for Jay Marie - or anyone else that wants a fun little project for a "stocking stuffer" or easy craft fair offering.
You will need a focal fabric plus a contrasting lining fabric. Your focal fabric should be cut 6 1/2" by 5 1/2". Cut your lining fabric 7 1/2" by 5 1/2".
With right sides together, sew your pieces together along both ends of the 5 1/2" side using 1/4"seam.
Turn right sides out and press so that your lining fabric shows evenly on each side of your focal fabric.
Next, bring both sides to the center and press.
Sew across the ends, again using 1/4" seam.
Then zig-zag stitch across these same ends.
Turn your tissue holder right side out. You will need a point turner to "poke" the corners nice and neat.
There - all done!

Thanks, Marge. What a cute little gift idea.
You are welcome, ladies. I know I have had fun making them. You can do a bunch of them very quickly when you just chain them together like when you do your piecing.
Thank you for the cute idea and directions.
This proves It marge. you are an evil enabler... I So-o-o-o did not need more creative inspiration right now!
Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.
Aww come on CC. You could make them out of dinosaur fabric and sell them at the gift shop
Thanks Marge for another great tutorial. These are cute. This would be a good project for the serger, too.

Diane Morgan:This would be a good project for the serger, too
The ladies at sewing guild who made the original ones did use the serger across the ends instead of doing the zig zag step. My serger is threaded with white and I wanted to match thread colors on all of them. I'm being lazy in that I didn't want to keep rethreading my serger to get the matching thread colors. Besides, I think I would have had to remove the left needle too to have it come out 1/4". It was quicker for me just to zig zag the ends.
