Quick Little Gifts from Your Scraps
Got scraps? Matching scraps? Well, this is the perfect way to use up those scraps to make lovely gifts for teachers, friends, stocking stuffers, and just about any occasion to say "I care." This is a repost from 2017 and I've shared this technique many times on this blog. Always good to see it again.
Here's a link to a TUTORIAL. Remember?
|7 little tissue holders made with Windham "It's a Hoot" Collection|
|4 little tissue holders using my Kaffe scraps|
Two rectangles. The outside (wavy print) is cut 6" x 7". The inside lining (dots) is cut larger at 6" x 8-1/4".
|Start with two rectangles|
|Sew the two rectangles together|
|Fold and bring edges into the center|
Stitch the raw edges with 1/4" seam. Then clip the corners (to reduce bulk). I like to zigzag the raw edges for a clean finish.
|Stitch closed; clip corners; zigzag raw edges|
Fold right sides out and voila! A lovely tissue holder ready for sniffles weather.

When I showed the It's a Hoot tissue holders to my contacts at Windham, they said adults like them, too. (This was a post about Back to School.) So I put 4 in an envelope and sent them up to New Jersey!
Remember to keep one for yourself, too!
