Tissue Box Cover
‘Tis the season…..
Here’s another quick/scrap-using project. Do you like these kinds of projects? I do.
Tissue Box (I used a square Kleenex brand box)
Scrap pieces of fabric
***I used upholstery type fabric, so it was pretty thick. You can use cotton too but just use some fusible interfacing to make the fabric thicker, so it keeps its shape better.
First, cut out a top piece that’s 5 x 5 inches and 4 side pieces that are 6 x 5 inches. (Or it might be different if you’re using a rectangle box or another brand that has different dimensions. In that case, measure each side and add 1/4 inch seam allowance to all sides.)
Now, you’ll pin your top piece to your side piece, with right sides together. Fold the little square opening together at the sides, creating a square corner as you pin. Do this to all 4 corners and sew into place.
Now, turn the cover right side out and fold the bottom edge under a 1/4 inch and then another 1/4 inch and sew into place (adjust or trim if you need to before folding bottom edge under).
Iron as best you can to make your edges sharp and crisp.
Slide over your tissue box and proudly display your little creation!
