Pocket Tissue Cover with Contrast Trim


tissue-cover-completedThis new pattern is a variation on my earlier pocket tissue holder tutorial. While the original pattern is attractive and easy to put together, I wanted to find a way to let the pretty coordinating linings show a bit to make them pop a bit more. So, after a little trial and error, I figured out a way to sew the tissue covers so that the lining fabric wraps around the edges of the opening and shows on the front. The inside ends are sealed inside a small French seam so everything is neat and tidy.

I make these in batches because it seems like too much work to dig out the fabric and ironing board for just one. I thread my machine with a neutral color thread and chain sew these, machine assembly fashion. Chain sewing saves a lot of time and thread because you don't have to keep stopping your machine to cut the threads.


Supply List

  • Two pieces of coordinating fabric at least 6 1/2 inches by 8 inches.
  • Basic sewing supplies: matching thread, pins, seam ripper
  • Pocket tissue package
  • Optional, but helpful: cutting mat, rotary cutter, and a square ruler. You certainly can make the tissue cover without these, but they make it much, much easier.

Cutting Instructions:

  • From the outside fabric, cut a rectangle 6 1/2 inches by 6 1/4 inches
  • From the lining fabric, cut a rectangle 7 1/2 inches by 6 1/4 inches
