    When I first saw this thread, I loved the tissue holder but didn't think I could make them.
    Well, I've lost count. I also taught others how. One of those ladies had made 160 and another one 80.
    Thank you a million times.

    I'm guessing among these board members, we've done about a million. I'm close to 300 and now doing the 5 piece one but without the button.

    Going to use the 5 piece cover idea for seasonal pillow covers for my living room, too. My pillows are solid color, so if a bit of the center shows thru, it's not a problem.

    Timing is everything! I had looked up a pattern last night to begin making these for a bridal party. So glad I waited. This is so much quicker and just as nice.

    If you will be using some dressy fabrics, you may need a billion pins each. I've done some velvet & some satin-------pretty, but a bit difficult to keep in place before sewing.

    I have a question about embroidery on flour sack cloths. I have done several from my church, but I hate the way the look on the backside. Is there a way of hiding the back stitching?

    You could make microwave bowls, oven dresses, cuttle babies, rolled pillow cases, matching Mom's & daughters aprons, body bibs. These all go fast & are very easy.

    Thanks! You made it look so easy!
    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    Our guild is having a sale table at a local event this fall. In a moment of weakness and insanity I volunteered to making the free with purchase gift. I'm making these.
    Got fabric?

    Bella Boo, these will go over great. When I make a bunch, instead of buying the little tissue packs to go inside them, (which sometimes I am unable to find) I just grab a large box of tissues and take out about 5-6 and fold them individually in thirds, stack in a pile and insert them inside. Lots less expensive that way and folks gfet the idea of what they are for.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Tee Hee! Been there, done that. I've lost count of how many I've made. (nearing 500). I like the 5 piece tissue holder too. Sounds like it might be a bunch harder, but it's not.

    Using your tutorial, several ladies are making these for the BIG E Fair in Springfield, MA in September. They are fun to make. Thanks for your tutorial.

    Here in our area, the only brand we can get is Kleenex and the cheap stores have about the same prices as other stores.
