Tissue holders

More 'makings' to go to Palmetto Tat Days in September. 

I absolutely love these little tissue holders. I made one for myself some time ago and then sold oodles at the craft thingy we did in the library last October. 

If you're like me you always carry tissues around in your handbag. They come in plastic and you'd think that that would be fine but I've found that the plastic sort of goes yucky after a while rumbling around in my bag so I tried putting the tissues in one of these holders. They protect them very well. 

Normally at home I sell them with a packet of tissues in them but I'm afraid that I won't be able to do that when I bring them 'over the pond'. The reason? Well I spent time last weekend sorting out what I'm bringing to sell and putting it in the suitcase. Now the problem is - will I be able to bring any clothes? It's getting rather full so I may have to post some of the items ahead of my trip but that'll cost a lot. Somehow I'll manage, I'm sure and if I sell loads of 'stuff' then I'll be able to buy lots of 'stuff' to bring home!!!! In theory I'm really trying to make enough to cover part of my flights and insurance but temptation may come my way!!!!

Oh, the price of these is $3.35 if you want one or any put by.  Ideal Christmas stocking fillers!

It'll defeat the object a bit if you have to post them ahead. I hope you can fit everything in.

I'm mailing a box early also. I want to make sure it gets there before I pack my suitcase! Can't wait to see all the goodies and meet you!!

I'm hoping NOT to mail anything, picotsnkeys but I may well need a trip to a store as soon as I hit the tarmac!!!! It'll be good to meet at last!!!

Lovely fabrics! I'm sure you'll sell everything in a wink!
Been there, way too many times: packing, unpacking and re-packing, and again, to make everything fit in a suitcase! I ended up buying some of those plastic bags with a kind of valve in the middle, and you use a hoover to suck out all the air and magically reduce the volume of the bag; they come in many sizes, I found some that fit my suitcase perfectly. Of couse I don't remove ALL the air or the wrinkles on the clothes would be unmanageable, but I usually can save at least 1/4 of the space. Actually, depending, on the kind of accommodation I use, sometimes I remove all the air (half the volume at least) and bring my mini-iron along!

Great idea, craftie sylvie. I’ll try the vacuum bags. For clothes - I usually roll them up like sausages nowadays as they seem to get less creased doing that.
