WHAT YOU NEED:
- Two pieces of coordinating cotton fabrics
- Sewing Machine
STEP 1: FABRIC SELECTION & CUTTING
This project is a great way to reduce your scrap fabric stash. From your scrap stash (or purchase fabric) select two complimentary cotton fabrics.
From the fabric you want on the outside of the tissue holder, cut a piece that measures 6" x 6".
From the other fabric, cut a piece that measures 6" x 8". The 6" x 8" piece is the lining and small border around tissue cover opening.
STEP 2: SEWING PIECES TOGETHER
With the two fabrics right sides together, aligning the 6” sides together and pin in place.
Sew the sides using a 1/4" seam. After sewing the piece should resemble the following picture.
STEP 3: PRESSING
Take the sewn piece to the ironing board and press the seams toward the main fabric. Then, press the fabric flat so that you have approximately 1/2” of the lining fabric showing on each side.
STEP 4: SEWING
At the sewing machine, sew one long side closed using a 1/4" seam. On the other long side, sew ¼” from the edge but leave a 2” opening in the middle. This opening will be used to turn the fabric right side out.

STEP 5: TURNING RIGHT SIDE OUT
Carefully turn the fabric right side out though the opening. Press the fabric flat, making sure to tuck and press the opening seam to the inside.
STEP 6: FOLDING
On a flat surface put the piece with the main fabric (outside fabric) facing up. Fold the short sides to the center overlapping them about 1/4”. Pin to hold them in place.
STEP 7: SEWING
Sew along each end using a scant 1/4” seam. A scant 1/4" seam is a seam which is a little less than 1/4 inch.
STEP 8: FINISHING UP
Turn the tissue cover right side out and poke out the corners.
TA DA! The fabric pocket tissue holder is done. Just add tissues and pop it in a handbag, backpack or coat pocket.
These fabric tissue holders are very addictive to make. Keep some on hand for last-minute gifts for teachers, Mother’s Day, stocking stuffers, hostess gift, friends or birthdays.
