    I make those too, put tissue in them and sell them for $3.00. I think this is reasonable.

    I sell these at a local small shop and sell them for $3. I include a package of tissue inside it as well.....very convenient for the purchaser. I buy the 10-12 pack of tissues at Walmart or Target for minimal cost so well worth the llittle extra effort. Never sold them at craft shows though....did other items.

    I agree. I used them all the time. Get them in bulk at Costco and use them in my purse. Keeps my tissues from getting all frayed. I am going to try this pattern. Thanks for posting it!

    Most of the tissues that I have seen open in the front. I don't think I have seen those that open from the top. Kleenex, costco, Wal-Mart, Target all have tissues that open in the middle.

    I pulled out a scrap bag, cut the linings from solids or nondescript prints. Then I cut out outsides from pretty prints-------------then I sorted, for the first 50 or so. After that I did some holiday stuff that needed red or white: Christmas, Valentines day, patriotic. I did manage to make a very few masculine covers.

    SOMEWHERE in this house is a huge bag of pants legs, denim, khaki, black, navy, some far out prints that I had left over from doing a few dozen shopping bags. I NEED THEM NOW. But I can't find them. I can't image that I got rid of them.

    I like a bit heavier lining since some of my prints were rather light weight.

    Again, seems reasonable with the tissues included. I need to buy the tissues, too, but I keep forgetting to add them to my shopping list.

    Everyone I know uses the tissues------------except me! I'm going to have to change and start using them now that I have all the neat covers.

    I've sold them for $2 at the one craft show I do every year. Time to make some more, this year's show is coming up in a few weeks. Packs of tissues can be found for around $2 for 10 packs, scrap fabric, a few minutes, you're all set.

    Thank you, now I know what I will make for the kids teachers this year for Christmas. Our budget is stretched and this would be a useful gift.

    I may make some in the school colours for the school store to sell.

    A larger version could be used to cover bum wipe packages.

    A smaller one with the opening near the top could be used for business cards.
