    Pair two fat quarters that look nice together - the closer they are to 22" long, the better. Press them right sides together with lots of starch to pre-shrink and stiffen them.

    Trim the pair along one long side to give you an even edge.

    Make one cut 6" wide and one cut 7" wide.

    Peel the layers apart and take the 6" strip from one and pair it with the other fabric that's 7" wide. (and vice-versa) Align one edge and steam them together to keep the layers from shifting.

    Sew the long sides.

    Turn the resulting tubes right side out. Press them so that the seam allowance goes toward the contrasting edges.

    Press the tubes flat with equal amounts of the contrasting edges showing on both long edges of the tube.

    If you have FQ's that are 22" long, cut each tube into four 5" sections. If you have less than 22", make the sections a little narrower - 5" or 5-1/8"

    With the outside of the sections face up, press the right and left sides in toward the center. Sew across the short ends, then serge to finish the edges if you want to. Turn right side out and press again.

    Hope these directions make more sense - I guess I was too distracted when I wrote the first time. I will try to take some pictures, next time.

    these would be perfect for my mom's flea market booth. Thanks for the great tutorial.
    Don't wait for inspiration to get started - get to work and the inspiration will come.

    I'm not going to mention names but someone here cut out over 30 more Christmas tissue holders last night when she couldn't sleep.

    I'd also like to make these for the regular full-size tissues for around the house. They could blend with your decor. But the measurements? Hmmm

    my MIL has a tissue cover that is a fitted piece around the tissue box and then a flat decorated piece lying over the box attached at the slit. Wish I could do pics on here. It's cute and fairly easy. Would be just right for using orphan blocks on the top piece. Don't know if we could pull up an example on google or not. Gonna try.
