The front of the cover is sewn from folded fabrics similar to my pattern of folded fabric coasters and potholders. Tissues are easily pulled out of the opening or stored inside when not in use.

I used the Kleenex On the Go tissue packs that I found at Target. I’ve found a similar article for you on Amazon for easy reference.

Pocket Cloth Cover Finished Dimensions

Finished tissue holders measure approximately 2 1/4″ x 4″.

Tips for choosing materials

This project works best with cotton quilting fabric. Tissue packet covers are particularly waste-friendly because you will only need small rectangles of fabric.

The top of the potholder or coaster uses 4 rectangles of fabric. I suggest using at least two different fabrics for the top to get that great woven effect. Of course, you can use up to 5 different fabrics if you want!

Any type of thread you can use on your sewing machine will work great. I used cotton thread, but polyester thread works too. The only visible seam is the topstitching of the hanging loop.

So let’s start making beautiful fabric covers that you can give as gifts this holiday!

To make a tissue holder, you will need:

  • 3 rectangles of fabric measuring 4″ x 6″ (2 for the front and 1 for the back)
  • 2 rectangles of fabric, 4″ x 4 1/2″ (for the front)
  • 1 rectangle of fabric 2″ x 5″ to make the hanging loop

You will also need:

  • Thread
  • Cutting tools: scissors, rotary cutter, acrylic ruler and cutting mat
  • Sewing pins
  • A sewing machine and a sewing machine needle (size 80/12 or 90/14 suggested)
  • Wand or turning tool

How to Sew a Folded Fabric Tissue Pack Holder

Do the hanging loop

1. Fold the 2″ x 5″ strip of fabric in half lengthwise (wrong sides together) and press. Then open it and fold the long edges towards the center, press.

2. Topstitch along both long edges, close to the edge.

Fold and press 4 of the fabric rectangles

1. Set aside the 4″ x 6″ piece of fabric for the back of the fabric cover for now.

2. Fold the 4″ x 4 1/2″ fabric rectangles in half, placing the 4″ edges wrong sides together. Press to create 4″ x 2 1/4″ rectangles.

3. Fold the 4″ x 6″ fabric rectangles in half, placing the 6″ edges wrong sides together. Press to create 6″ x 2″ rectangles.

Sew the tissue pack backing

Use a 3/8″ seam allowance, except when sewing over the hanging loop. If you want more room inside your tissue holder, for a looser fit, use a 3/8″ seam allowance. 1/4″.

1. Fold the rectangle of fabric for the back of the tissue holder in half, right sides together. Use your fingernail or a seam roller to make a small crease in the fabric on one side.

2. Fold the hanging loop in half and place the ends together on either side of the small fold. The raw edges of the loop should line up with the raw edge of the fabric rectangles.

Pin the loop in place.

Tip: If your loop strip has a nicer side, place that side up.

3. Sew the hanging loop to the back of the tissue holder with a 1/4″ seam allowance.

4. Lay the back of the tissue holder on your workspace, right side up.

Place a 2″ x 6″ rectangle of folded fabric on top with the folded edge toward the center.

Working counterclockwise, place a 4″ x 2 1/4″ rectangle of folded fabric on the left side, with the folded edge toward the center.

Pin the fabrics together in the upper left corner.

Place the second folded 2″ x 6″ rectangle of fabric along the bottom with the folded edge toward the center.

Pin the fabrics together in the lower left corner.

Then place the final folded 4″ x 2 1/4″ rectangle of fabric on the right side with the folded edge toward the center.

Pin the fabrics together in the bottom right corner.

Lift the first rectangle halfway to weave the last one underneath. Pin the upper right corner.

5. Using a 3/8″ seam allowance, sew all the way around the fabric cover. You do not need to leave an opening for turning. Pivot with your needle down in all directions. corners.

5. Cut off the extra fabric at the corners. I usually cut more than that, but right now I just cut each corner at a 90 degree angle, without cutting the seams.

This trim will allow us to see exactly where the corner of the box is when making box corners.

Create Boxed Corners

1. Pinch one corner of the tissue holder so that the short side is aligned with the long side. Fold the seam allowances in opposite directions so you can “nest” the seams between your thumb and fingers.

2. Pin the seam so it doesn’t move as you move to your sewing machine.

3. Use the markings on your sewing machine as a guide to sew the corner with a 1/2″ seam allowance. This means that the tip of the corner (where you cut) should be guided along the 1/2″ guideline of your sewing machine.

Make sure to backstitch at the start and end of this seam to keep it secure.

Tip: If you don’t have a 1/2″ guide line on your sewing machine, you can use the edge of your sewing machine foot as a guide. A standard sewing machine foot is 3/8″ wide, so let the tip of the corner extend 1/8″.

4. Cut the extra fabric at this location to leave a 1/4″ seam allowance.

Repeat for all four corners.
