I just made these for the first time today!!! I found an amazing tut.

I am a beginner sewer and these were SUPER easy to make.  I made one each for the Grammas.  I added a ribbon as a wrist strap so they could hang it or wear it.

I found this tutorial online as well.  It's a little different than the one listed above but they both come out the same.  One might be easier than the other to embellish with ribbon and the like.

I will add my tut after Christmas, I do mine a little different to get the two tone color effect on the front of the cozy.

Thanks all,
Judy

I had thought about adding a wrist strap with Velcro so they could be worn like a corsage, you could do them in wedding fabric and add silk flowers or beading, voila Kleenex Cozies Corsage!

Whatcha think?

Well here's my tut to make a two tone kleenex cozy (I still don't have one for myself  Undecided) Cut two pieces of fabric, one 8 inches (it will be the inside fabric and outside strip) the other 6 inches (outside fabric), both by 7 inches. My seam allowance was 1/4 inch. On one end pin right sides together and sew. You can change the deminsions to suit how big you want the outside strip as long as it is about 14 inches total.


Do the same with the other side, sew and then press flat.


Sew down one of the sides all the way and the other side leave an opening in the middle for turning. Turn rightside out and iron flat. I iron the seam allowance in and I don't sew over this because when you fold it, it will get sewn then.


Fold (solid side out) to the middle and over lap slightly, sew down the sides
Turn inside out and fill up with your favorite kleenex!



This is my first tut so be gentle.  Wink
