    The little shirt pattern was from the magazine Quilts and More Magazine a while back. Segasal did the original post under "cute little shirts" I think. The first shirt took about an hour to make but I can do them in about 15 minutes now. A do the tissue holders as a way to get people to look at my stuff hoping they will buy other things too. Craft Shows have been slow here.

    I would feel like I was ripping someone off to charge $4-5 for a tissue cover.

    I've used this one too! Really like it...it takes me longer to pick out the fabric than it does to make them.
    Remember the teakettle...it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it still sings!

    I find this so interesting, because I have never in all my life ever bought those little packs of tissues. I just grab a stack and stick them in the corner of my purse, or in my pocket. So I question who actually buys them? I have thought of making some too, but I don't know anyone around here that would even use one.

    I used to do the same but tissues often got messy in purse. Used this tute to make covers and was amazed as how easy they were - and nice looking. Made them as a little Valentine's gift for teachers in my granddaughter's daycare. They were a big hit!

    I have made some of these but am having trouble finding tissues that open from the front and not the top, which brand do you use. Thanks
