    Thanks for this tutorial, I have made 3 and plan to make several more to give to ladies at the retreat I am attending next week. So easy and so useful.

    How clever! So easy and inexpensive I can have one to coordinate with whatever purse or bag I'm using. :-)
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    Thank you so much. You made it very clear and easy to understand. I think I'll make a million or two for everyone I know.

    I guess I am really stupid. I don't get it. Do you have a picture? When you say trim one long side, I am lost, how much? etc.

    The wonderful pics in the opening post on this thread were priceless. At least to me. (206 covers later!)

    I made 206 and every one was from scrap. A few of them were pretty prints that I had just a tad of----------great use for them.

    I even used up a bits of thread. No stitching shows so some short spools got used up.

    I make these also. I cut mine a little different: main fabric 6 x 5 1/2, lining 8 x 5 1/2. I do it this size so the trim is a little wider. But they are a lot of fun to make and so quick.

    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.

    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.
