These tissue covers are quick and easy and only take about a half hour to make. The hardest part is deciding which fabric to use! You need a piece of fabric cut 14 1/2″ by 5 3/4″. It can be a single fabric or two or more fabrics pieced together. Experiment and have fun!
Fold your 14 1/2″ x 5 3/4″ fabric in half, right sides matching the two short ends. Pin and sew using a generous 1/4″ seam. I like to use a zig zag stitch to finish the sewn edges in everything I do.
Turn right side out and press flat, keeping your seam line in the middle of your fabric.
With the seam line on the OUTSIDE, of your fabric bring both finished edges to the middle. Overlap the edges a scant 3/4 inch and pin in place.
Sew pinned sides with a generous 1/4″ seam, creating a fabric envelope. Stitch a second time to strength stress points where the edges overlap.
Turn the envelope right side out and insert the tissue pack.
Enjoy! And just wait for the complements.
Betcha can’t stop at one. Good news – they make great gifts!
