How to Make an Easy Sew Decorative Pocket Tissue Holder - Day 167 of 365, Tutorial Tuesday

Another day, another dollar.

Another long day at work and another day of a tutorial. I'm not sure why I started doing these tutorials. But I'm really not sure why I decided I should do them on Tuesdays, the day of the week I always work.

Actually, I do know why. Because Tutorial Tuesday sounds better than Tutorial Friday or Tutorial Sunday.

As I'm starting to rethink my scheduling and balance of work and home, I'm starting to rethink this Tutorial Tuesday thing. I do like doing them (even if no one watches them). I'll work on them for at least a couple more weeks then I'll be re-evaluating whether I'll continue. (The tutorials, that is. The daily pictures will absolutely continue.)

Today's video tutorial is pocket tissue covers. Something I wish I had with me at yesterday's funeral. Unfortunately, I only had McDonald's napkins to offer our daughter. They sufficed, but some pocket tissues would have been much more gentle on the nose and eyes.

They are really easy to make. Just a few minutes and you'll have one.

Looking for more sewing and crafting projects? 

In addition to the standard sewing supplies, for this project you will need:
  • 5 ½” x 6 ½” main fabric
  • 5 ½” x 7 ½” lining fabric
  • pocket tissues

May I ask a favor of you while you are doing your shopping this year?
As you know, as I blog I work hard at providing new crafting projects, travel content, and kitten fostering tips to readers. It's not a paid job and it's just me, myself, and I making sure new "stuff" gets out there each week. I do occasionally make a small - very small - commission with affiliate links. 

So here's the favor I'm asking...
If you plan on shopping on JoAnn or Amazon this year, would you mind using my link when you make the purchase? Remember, any commission I earn is at no additional cost to you. You know I never ask anyone for anything, and if you'd prefer not to, no worries. But if you do, I'd sure appreciate it!
