What do Lays potato chips and tissue cases have in common?? You can't have just one.  Cheesy Grin  These adorable cases are made entirely in the hoop in one hooping so they go really fast once you cut out all your fabric ahead of time.  The only thing that is expensive are the zippers so I need to find a cheaper source like Ebay if I plan to make more of them.  My dd has requested some for her teachers and my friend saw one and bought it from when I was showing them to her. I never expected that, I had to remake the grey as that is the one she wanted...it's my fave too.  I also realized they aren't just for tissues,they hold Ipod touches and my MyTouch phone.  My dd wants to use one for her gum and she thinks I should put my diabetes suppies in one too.  Here are a few pics of the ones I have made...just 14 of them.  Cheesy Cheesy

These would also work to hold an insulin pump after a small tweak or two.  Do you have a tut?

No, they were made on my embroidery machine, the machine does everything...all I do is place the fabric down in place and it sews it up for me.  I never thought about an insulin pump...I have this design that is used for credit cards and is a keychain. I'll have to see if my old pump fits in it.

Those are so cute! Did you design the embroidery file yourself or download it from somewhere?  I would like that file, if you know the source. 

As for zipper sources, I usually find zippers at yard/tag/rummage sales in the summers or salvage them from things that I'm throwing out.  My "garbage" rarely makes it to the can in its orignal condition, always "stripped": down, missing buttons, zippers, d-rings, etc. Thanks for the idea regardless, I think it would be fairly easy to reproduce via sewing machine.

I bought the design from here http://www.ggdesignsembroidery.com/index.php

I can make up a tute on how to make it via normal sewing machine. The nice thing about machine embroidery is that it is fast and easy and no worries about keeping a straight line. lol

They're really nice! I've not been that brave with my machine yet - but I did get very cheap zippage by buying the 'endless zip' off of good old EBay. I think I worked it out at about half the price of the regular finished zips, and it has the advantage of always fitting exactly Grin

I think they are awesome! I'd buy one from you in a heartbeat for my Ipod. I don't sew, but it's something I've wanted to learn. I just crochet and do a little bit of knitting.

Hmmm .... made tissues holders before but really like these with the zipper!!! Furthermore, my co-workers would love for me to have something like this for my phone. I tend to take it out of my pocket so it doesn't fall in the toilet and end up leaving it laying somewhere. Now EVERYONE knows who it belongs too. LOL they tied it to me with a string last week ... too funny.

Thanks for a new twist on an old idea!!

The only purpose of the day job is to buy the craft supplies!! Cheesy  Seriously, I LOVE making personalized crafts. I now have a line of hand-crafted fans and notecards using the Zentangle (R) technique. I have also become a Certified Zentangle Teacher and teach other artforms and techniques.

That is so sweet! It really is a good idea. The pouches they typically sell to hold those sorts of things are almost criminally ugly.

Very well done, and so cute! Thanks for the link to the embroidery site - I wasn't familiar with it, and now may have to buy that owl stuffie in-the-hoop design. Smiley

It's an embroidery hoop similar to the ones you use for hand embroidery, but it's attached to the embroidery unit on the sewing machine
