15 minutes Tissue Box Cover Sewing Tutorial
I had no plans on making this tutorial at all. My sewing project list is crammed with gazillion other ideas. The thought of making this tissue box cover came to me in the morning while I was getting ready for my class. I realized how ugly the napkins were looking wrapped up in the plastic, adding no beauty to the room. And I thought to myself, “hmm this needs to be tackled after the class.” I came home and after a quick nap whipped up this cover in less than an hour with all the recording and then the pictures. It felt really good to do a quick project after sewing 5 bags in one month.
Oh, and I also tried Canadian smocking for the first time. You can see the results on this Facebook post. I’m truly, madly, deeply in love.
Okay, onto the 15 minutes Tissue Box Cover Sewing Tutorial.
To make this fabric tissue box cover you will need the following items:
-1 fat quarter of fabric

– sewing machine
Steps for fabric tissue box cover
Step 1: Measure 12″ of the wide ribbon and cut it out. Fold and cut the ribbon into a half.
Step 2: Fold and press again
Step 3: Cut out two rectangles measuring 12″x6″.
Step 4: Place the folded ribbon on top of the rectangle so that the folded raw edges are aligned.
Step 5: Pin and sew from the top.
Step 6: Repeat for the other side.
Step 7: Pin the two sides together and sew along the edge with a basting stitch.
Step 8: Now press open the seam.
