That is very true!  I will surely try again, with some modifications!  Even my bf thought it was a great idea!  Thanks again!   Wink

Okay I feel like an idiot.  I am totally new to sewing but I thought I could handle this.  I ended up with a long, thin tube which was totally stuffed with seams.  LOL!  It was so far wrong, I could not believe it. 

HOWEVER, I think I may know the problem after looking at the tut again.  In the last step, when you fold the sides over and overlap a little bit, then you're supposed to sew down the sides.  I sewed parallel to the slit opening - I sewed the long way.  Looking at the placement of the pins, though, was I supposed to sew the short way - the two shorter ends perpendicular to the opening?

I know this is supposed to be logical, but I think it's hard to imagine how things work out when you're new to something. 

Help!

Hey Buns! 

Yes that is correct... sew down the short sides, then you should be able to flip it out of the slit that was overlaped a little bit, and put in your kleenex!  It works... i had to try a few times but now mine look great!  Keep on trying... i am new too so i feel your pain.   Cheesy

Everyone made some adorable cozies and I've read all seven pages of comments. It's been a fun thread to read and learn from. Great job everyone! Other day I watched Martha Stewart and a lady made one from ultra suede. Basically she cut the suede, and stitched the ends, then use decorative scissors to trim each end near the stitching. I've not tried one yet, but they looked like they would be very quick and easy. Of course, on TV everything looks 'quick and easy'. Smiley
Thanks everyone for sharing your tips and tuts.

I hate paying more for the plastic ones that get beat up and you never can use again. SO pretty much YEAH i love it. ALSO YOU're awesome for doing the tute. i think you did a great job on it. No need to worry about that at all Smiley great pics and instructions. k, gotta go make some Wink
