Tissue holders

Right!!! Here's another little project I've started. It's a 'quickie' one which I needed after the pouches.

These are covers for the little packets of tissues that you throw into your handbag or whatever. They're invaluable for mopping up noses, spills etc but the plastic around them, I find, gets a bit yucky after a while.

These little tissue holders certainly stop that happening, I've found.

I made over a dozen of them for the craft sale which we had in the library last October and found that I came home with just one left and was asked by people for more. So, I know they're a good idea!!! 

I like to make them with bright colours - just so I can see them in my handbag!!! There are two Japanese prints in this lot and a rose one too plus the lovely blue/green one at the top righthand side of the picture and some match the pouches!!!! It'll be the 'luck of the drawer' whether people will want or be able to buy a matching pair but these should fit in the suitcase without too much trouble. I'll probably put a packet of tissues in them if it looks like I'm going to have room!!!

I 'lost' one to my daughter who snaffled it when she saw them!!!

I love making those! They're quick, easy, and extremely useful!

Super, no wonder they sell so quickly. I was given a tissue holder the other day, it is a useful addition to my handbag.

It is a GREAT idea!! I have one that a friend gifted me many years ago. She thought I needed something more tasteful for the kleenex while sitting at the organ. She was right.....and so are YOU!
Just a few more weeks until we meet!

I hope it's more months than weeks, picotsnkeys!!!
Crazy Mom - what do YOU think?!?!?!? Already got your name on it.
