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.

      I stumbled across your site today and I love it! I have two little girl cousins ages 7 and 8 who love to carry purses. I am going to make them a tote, tissue holder, zippered pouch and crayon roll in matching fabric for their upcoming birthdays. And the purse organizer for me!
      Thanks for all the wonderful tutorials!
