I made these to go in with my Christmas gifts this year, I have decided to go with a more grab bag idea for gifts.  Make a bag (I am making everyone queenofdiy's grocery bag) and then stuff with smaller quick to craft gifts and one, maybe 2 (if I like you more) larger, more specific, gifts.  These are going in them, as well as crocheted dishcloths (I am doing the 50 by '08 challenge of the crochet board and I don't need 50 dishcloths myself), and whatever else I can think of.  Alright, less rambling, more picture posting.



I started out refering to a tutorial online for these just to get measurements but then I didn't even use those measurements, but they are pretty much just like any other tissue pouches you might come across, since there really aren't too many ways you can make them.  It's a great way to use up scraps!
Thanks!

I actually got the Wolfpack fabric from eBay around last Christmas (got a FQ, used the rest to make 2 coffee cozies), since I'm in MD and can't get it around here.  That one is for my youngest BIL, he will be starting his 2nd year there next week.  (The coffee cozies were for him last year)
I got some UNC fabric at the local Walmart last time I was in NC, they also had State and Duke fabrics.  My husband went to UNC, now if I can just figure out what to make him with it.

Another fabric question - but first some admiration!  I love the tissue packs, cute and useful, and I love the idea of making christmas gifts that way - things everyone can use, and some personalization, but not hours spent in the mall with huge piles of cash jumping out of your wallet!  So, great job.  Now, secondly, where did you get the gorgeous turqouise fabric with the flowers?  I LOVE it!

Thanks!

It was from Joann's (I get most of my fabric from Joann's, though looking at these half of the fabric is off eBay, haha), I got it last summer, so I don't know if they still carry it.
