Mini pack tissue covers are a great way to make cute multiple gifts for a group of people. In my case it was a bible study group I belong to. When I was trying to find a good tutorial on Pinterest with the correct dimensions it proved to be more of a task than I anticipated. Some only showed pictures and referred to some other topic and others just talked about their finished project and only one or two had actual dimensions. Those that had dimensions had too many pieces and seams for such a small quick project. I have boiled my mini tissue pack covers down to two ways of making them quickly and easily.
The first way involves cutting three pieces which is great for those who want to use up small scraps of fabric. The second method is my own design and uses only one piece of fabric and two seams. That’s what I call quick and to the point. You can check out my post How to Make a Mini Tissue Pack Cover (Method 2) if you want to keep it super simple. In this particular post we are going to show how to make a tissue cover using Method 1.
2 pieces at 4″ x 5-3/4″
1 piece at 5-3/4″ x 5-3/4″
Fold the 5-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ square in half with wrong sides together and press.
Fold one of the 4″ x 5-3/4″ pieces in half long ways with wrong sides together and press.
Place the remaining 4″ x 5-3/4″ piece right side up.
Place the wider folded piece on top on the left side of the piece, lining up the outer long edges.
Now place the more narrow folded piece on the right side on top of those two pieces lining up the long outer edges. The fold should overlap the the first folded piece by approximately 1/2″ to 3/4″.
Pin the three layers in place down the center where the folds overlap.
Stitch all four sides using a 1/4″ seam. I used a serger because I like finished seams.
Turn your cover right side out poking out your corners.
Press the seams and insert your tissue packet. Give those cute little packets to all your friends and family. Don’t forget to make one for your kids to keep in their school packs too.
All Done! That was easy right? Wait until you see my second method . Don’t forget to share or comment on any of my posts.
