    :-D :-D :-D :-D An old bag can have some of these made in 10 minutes. I do have an in the hoop one, but cannot write them to the card as my ultmiate box quilt working. These will do just fine. Maybe tomorrow I will try some with zippers. THey'd make great stocking stuffers. Enjoy, Huggies,

    Picutre is dark and fuzzy for some reasom, but these are so easy to make

    Those are great. I found a pattern for some, but I like the look of yours much better.

    I did not use binding at all Would you beleive it??? Ok you will need two pieces of fabric. The outside piece is 6 1/2" x 5 3/4" The inside piece is 7 3/4" x 5 3/4" Now pin the two pieces together right sides together, they are not going to match as one piece will a little bit longer than the other piece. That's the way it is supposed to be, this is the magic of it. Ok sew the short ends matching the raw edges and then center the outside piece and then press it.Now turn it right sode out. Now fold in the short ends that were just sewn and pressed to the center on the inside piece. It will be the largest piece of fabric and pin. Now sew the the open ends on each side and then you can turn them right side out and you will have a nice tissue case and the magic of the larger piece will look like a binding on it. Enjoy, Huggies, Fay

    Ok, I am not quite following this. :roll: When you say pin the fabrics together, do I center them so that there will be some of the longer piece showing on both ends, or just on one end? Maybe you could show pics of the different steps, if it wouldn't be too much trouble? That would be a big help.

    I love these! They're perfect to have my DGD practice on while learning to sew.
    Thank you for the tute!

    But unfortunately I need a little clarification, please.
    when you say "...sew the short ends matching the raw edges and then center the outside piece and then press it."
    I'm not sure what you mean by "center the outside piece".
    I guess I'm having trouble visualizing it.
    Sorry.
    I don't want to make extra work for you, but I'd love to see pix to go with the written directions. :D

    Ok here is my tute. You weill need two pieces of fabrics. Outside pieces is 6 1/2" x 5 3/4" and the Inside is 7 3/4" x 5 3/4" Step 2. Place the two fabrics together right sides sides together and pin and sew the short ends. Inside fabric will be longer than the outside piece will be. Step 3. Press the seams and then turn it right side out and press centering the outside piece. Step 4. Fold in the sewn edges to the center and pin and sew the new short ends. Step 5. Turn it right side out and press again and place the tissue inside and you are done! Enjoy. I'll put the steps on the caption of the pictures and sorry they do not do them justice, but you'll get the idea. Huggies, Fay

    Great job on the pictures. You should post this in the tutorial section, I think they would make great stocking stuffers.

    Your all welcome maybe a mod can move this to the tute section. I'm tired and the ol' ticker isn't feeling too good this a.m. So I'll go lie down for a spell, Huggies, Fay
