    Just a reminder--------10 days from now when you are buried under a few dozen tissue covers-----------DON'T BLAME ME. Blame the original pattern poster.

    BTW, I'm more than willing to give up my temporary "tissue cover queen" claim. Anyone wanting to go for 21 0-------------HELP YOURSELF!

    They are, quick and easy. I got 50+ done this week for a bazaar table for our quilt guild.
    I am starting phone sleeves next, just a little more complicated. Ten days to go, we'll see how many are finished by then. It is nice using scraps of fabric and batting to open space for new stash.

    At some point in this thread (or another one about this same subject) there was a question about the pattern size. The original pattern that I printed out said to cut the biggest piece 7-1/2" high. Then there was a response from someone that the tissue cover turned out too small. Then someone else said it should be 8-1/2" high instead. To you all that have been making so many of these - what is the correct size?
    I have been making some of these from another pattern and I really like this pattern better, but have not made any yet.
    Thank you,, Pat

    I've increase the sizes of the lining to 6" x 9" and the outer shell to 6" x 7". The tissue packets are a bit loose in this size, but the center doesn't gap open. (don't panic-----------the measurements are right. You'll see.)
    I got on the kick of making these recently but wondered something. Do people actually use them? Carry them in their purses? Frankly, I don't carry a huge purse so one wouldn't fit in mine.

    I did find that when my opening gapped more than I wanted, I overlapped the ends of the opening just a bit & I was happy with that.

    You must be seeing these things in your sleep after making so many.

    Wow. That's a lot of tissue covers and one way to kick out a bunch of scraps... I don't think I'd want to make any more for a long time that's for sure

    It takes real skill to choke on air, fall upstairs and trip over completely nothing .... I have that skill!!!

    I've never made any of the tissue holders but you've got me thinking I need to do so. And I thought I was going to clean house in the morning. LOL
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I've been making these for my friend's daughter to raise for funds for their dancing school. I use the size in the original post 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 and 5 1/2 x 7 1/2.
    I had templates made by a sign writer for a couple of pounds so I can tell very easily whether or not a scrap is going to fit and speeds up cutting immensely.
    The tissues I use are packs of 10 from our Poundshop (Dollar store - which of course here, is $1.60, lol). The tartan holder has tissues in it.

    Addictive exercise! I ran up 3 dozen a couple of years ago when my girls turned 21 as party favours for all the ladies. They were loads of fun to make and much appreciated by the recipients.

    Thank you for the size info. I am sharing this pattern with my sister and two friends and wanted to give them the right sizes. Thanks again, Pat

    Great idea, received one with an open end, not slotted, I use it for cell phone, since I have a rubber cover, it does not slip and keeps the lint off the rubber cover, and makes it easier to find in bottom of purse.

    I bought 8 packs of Kleenex tissues or 2.25 at our Dollar General. With the 7% sales tax, each packet is just a teenytiny bit over .30 each.

    Do the tissue packets you are using work with this pattern. The only packets I can find have a flap -type closure that doesn't work very well

    I think the flap would be easy enough to cut off, or fold back.
