Here is a quick and simple gift to make, a pocket tissue holder.
All you need is two pieces of fabric 6 1/2″ X 7″ each.
With right sides together stitch 1/4 inch from the edge all around the outside of the fabric. Leave about 1-2″ opening on the LONG side for turning.
Turn and press. Make sure to press the opening to the inside.
Bring short edges to the middle. Place the fabric you want on the outside in the inside.
You can choose whether to meet the edges exactly in the middle (left picture) or overlap the edges by about 1/4 of an inch (right picture)
Stitch 1/4 inch from the edge along each end.
Turn right side out and fill with your pocket tissues. I put a slit down the center of the plastic packaging on my tissues so they were easy to remove.
You could easily make a ton of these assembly style. They would make great little party favors, teacher gifts, thank you gifts or just to give someone a little something!
