patchwork obsession: part 19


patchwork tissue holders

These were made from bits in my scrap box.
Last Sunday, while in church, my friend went through about a dozen tissues. I felt so bad for her (she has sinus problems) that I gave her my fabric tissue holder. She loved it. I decided to make a bunch more: one for each purse that I currently have in rotation, (photos here) and then a few more to give away as needed. It's getting to be cold season, and how nice would that be, to hand someone a kleenex pretty (as Amy Jo calls them) when they have the sniffles?

They are the cutest thing and so great for using odds and ends of fabric.

I love my kleenex pretty (even more so now that I have this cute name for it). They do make such sweet little gifts.

I love it when I recognize fabric on your blog!!! These are awesome! Hope the scraps I sent weren't too small - I am always amazed at what you create with scraps, so I sent you every square inch!

They look great! Making one for each purse (and some to spare) is a good idea.

Fun. I like the tissue holder you gave to me, even if it isn't patchwork.

So pretty, and what a great idea to have plenty to spare. I always seem to have pockets full of tissues.

What a great idea. I should make some to randomly give away. (I made 38 for Christmas last year.)

These are so cute! I made one for myself, but giving them away is a great idea. Great way to use up some scraps.

They're so cute! I should make some for myself because it seems every time I make one I give it away.
