Travel Tissue Holder

I save material scraps and mostly use them for quilting, but I came across a pattern for a tissue holder which I thought would make great gifts.

There are several versions that you can review here.

I cut out two pieces from different patterns.

Outside material - 5 1/2" x 6 1/2"
Lining - 5 1/2" x 7 1/2"
(Note: The video below suggests a larger size)

Sew together on the 5 1/2" sides
Turn right side out (lining will show on the sides).
Press with an iron
Fold edges toward the center
Sew the short ends

Note: you can buy the tissue inserts at the dollar store or DollarTree but they will be a little smaller than the usual size pocket tissues.
