I made a total of 23 kleenex cozies (here's a few) that I gave out, they were all a great hit (I don't even have one for myself!  Undecided).



Thanks for looking!

I too made purse sized tissue covers this year!

I actually overlapped the center opening by about a 1/4" to keep them covered a bit more, but otherwise the same.

They were so fast and easy.  I haven't given mine out yet... I'll let you know the results.

I sew, but not well, and a friend of my friend said she'd mail this pattern to me.  Are they hard to make?   Undecided  I LOVE them though!  I especially love your fabric choices. So pretty.

I was just thinking about making some of these today!  Yours look great and I'm glad everyone liked them!

Spurtiic - these are very easy to make - you shouldn't have any problem at all with them.

you know, i keep seeing these and they're so cute, yours especially, but i am scratching my head over them because all of my packs of tissues open from the top. what is wrong with them, do i have disfunctional tissue packages? is it only kleenex brand that opens like that?
i'm making some hand bags and purses and would these Ever be a nice little extra. IF i can get tissue packs that work in them that is!

cheers!

I can see why those were well-received, they're adorable!

I too made purse sized tissue covers this year!

I actually overlapped the center opening by about a 1/4" to keep them covered a bit more, but otherwise the same.

They were so fast and easy.  I haven't given mine out yet... I'll let you know the results.

I've been thinking about making these and saw the pattern for the overlapped style, do the tissues still come out easily?

These look so well made!  Is there a pattern or tutorial out there for these?  I can't seem to get the measurements right to get a snug fit.

Very nice work! I love the idea of making all the little ordinary things that we take for granted into something personal and cute.

I'm not sure if there is a tutorial on craftster but in the latest issue of readymade magazine they had directions, I bet you could find the project on their site.
