Pocket full of hearts
I was thinking about making these for some special teachers. I would have to make about three more sets---so we will have to see if I have the steam. If not I will give these to a friend. They were very quick and easy!
Twelve 22 has a great tutorial on how to make the little pouch. Instructions for the tissue holder can be found at Bell Dia, a beautiful blog. She has a wonderful tea cozy today. I did adapt the instructions for the tissue holder. I used Kleenex sized travel tissues which must be considerably smaller than what she used. I found mine worked if I used fabric and lining each measuring 6 1/2 inches by 7 inches. I used 1/4 seams throughout. The final seams at each end were less than 1/4 inch (a touch more than an 1/8 inch). I also left the opening to turn on the long side ---this kept me from having to whip it shut once turned, because it is hidden on the inside.
