created by Bonnie Tatro
We all know how we love those easy-to-make “In The Hoop” projects and Bonnie has created another one for us! This holder for the personal-sized tissue packs will quickly become a favorite to stitch out! It uses only three pieces of fabric, 5×7 inches in size!
Now is the time to pull out all of those small pieces of fabric leftover from other projects and start making these tissue holders! Make enough for stocking stuffers and to have as a sure-sell at craft shows!
Bonnie has included nine designs for this project, enough to suit any need!
Please read through instructions and prepare your fabric before
Embroidery Thread of your choice
Tear‐away or wash‐away stabilizer
Fabric of your choice – I used a light weight cotton fabric
Cut 3 5×7 pieces of fabric for each case.
Take 2 of the pieces and fold in half along the 7” side and press with wrong sides
together. Each piece will be 2 ½” x 7” after folding.
CC – Stands for Color Change
I suggest using thread the same color as fabric for CCs 1 – 2 and the last CC of
Hoop stabilizer and place hoop on machine
Stitch out the first CC.
Take your long pieces of fabric and lay folded edge along the center stitched line
in the hoop, laying one down at a time and having them meet in the middle on
See pictures below.
Next stitch CC 2 – this will tack down the 2 pieces and hold them in place, then
continue with stitching the design.
After stitching design take the other 5×7 piece of fabric and lay (right side down)
over top of hoop then stitch last CC; this will stitch the 2 pieces together.
When finished remove from hoop, clip all the bobbin jump threads, remove your
stabilizer from fabric and then turn right side out and press.
Now add your package of tissues and you’re done.
