    Smile 205 tissue holders-done!

    I made 205 tissue holders to give away as little favors tomorrow. Our church is hosting our annual ladies day apart and these will be a small gift for each person attending. Also- the men do all the food serving and cleanup! It will be a good day.

    I posted a pic down a bit.

    I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!

    I have made several from the tutorial but with so many to make, I made strips and cut them to size, instead of making each one individually. It saved a lot of time.

    I cut WOF strips of both fabrics and sewed them together on both sides, then turned the tube right side out and pressed. Then I cut the individual pieces and sewed the sides on my serger chain style, cut them apart, turned the holder right side out and voila! The outside piece (black & white) is cut 7 1/2" and the lining (red) is cut 6 1/4", then the strip is subcut to 5 3/4".
