Post Tissue Boxes
TISSUE BOX PROJECT: by JenniferB

Image

This stiff sided tissue box is designed to fit a wide variety of brands of tissue, because the tissues are removed from their cardboard box and slip inside the embroidered box. This is handy if you buy different brands of tissues on sale in different sized boxes. If you wish to insert the entire cardboard box, I’d suggest measuring your tissue box and adding at least ¼ inch to each of the width, depth and length measurements.

For my box:

Image

Cut 1 rectangle of stiffy stuff like Stitch N Shape 9 ½ inches by 18 inches
Cut 2 rectangles 4 ½ inches by 4 inches

Cut 1 square of fabric 20 inches by 20 inches

Lay the fabric face down on your ironing surface and press flat. Arrange the Stitch N Shape according to the layout. Pin with 2 or 3 pins to hold in place, then flip over so the right side of the fabric is up, and the stiff stuff is down. Remove the pins, make final adjustments if necessary, then fuse the fabric to the stiff stuff according to the manufacturer’s instructions

Leave 1 inch of fabric to turn over to the inside, and trim away the excess.

Carefully turn over the raw edges and press them to the stiff stuff .

Embroider your design. I used the hoopless method with a basting stitch. This shows what the finished embroidery and pressed piece looks like.

Image

Mark the opening for the tissues. Embroider the opening using an applique shape, or cut it out and very slowly Sew around with a satin stitch.

Sew 2 elastic loops to the top back flap. Sew two buttons on the bottom back flap.

Image…Image

Sew the box together by hand with tiny stitches. Leave the back flap pieces loose.

Image

Remove tissues from their cardboard box and place inside the embroidered box

Image

Close down the flaps and slip the elastic loops over the buttons

Another view of the finished box. I hot glued some loose buttons to it for added decoration.

Post In the Hoop Purse Tissue Packs
IN THE HOOP PURSE TISSUE PACKS by JenniferB

This is a tissue case done completely in the hoop. It uses Marie’s 6 inch appliqué rectangle and a design of your choice. Pocket packs of tissues fit inside. It also makes a pretty case to carry personal items in your handbag.

Supplies:
1 piece Stitch n Shape 7 inches x 5 ½ inches
2 pieces fabric 7 inches x 5 ½ inches
1 piece fabric 12 inches x 5 ½ inches

1. Fuse the 7x 5 ½ inch fabric to the front and back of the Stitch n Shape. If you don’t have Stitch N Shape, cotton quilt batting will work but will not produce a rigid case.

2. Fold the 12 x 5 1/2 inch fabric in half across the width to make a piece 6 inches x 5 ½ inches. Press

3. Hoop water soluble stabilizer. Secure the 7 x 5 ½ inch fused fabric to the stabilizer, centering in the hoop.

4. Stitch the first rectangle outline from Marie’s 6 inch appliqué rectangle. Marie’s first colour is usually blue. This will tack the fusible securely for the next step.

5. Embroider your chosen design. Remove the hoop from the arm, but leave the fabric hooped.

Image

6. Place the 6 inch x 5 ½ inch fabric on the back of the hoop, with the fold at the top, and placed approximately ½ inch down from the rectangle stitch line. Pin in place from the front

Image

7. Place the hoop back on the machine and stitch the second pass of the appliqué rectangle. This will tack the top and bottom pieces of the tissue case together.

8. Remove the hoop from the arm, but leave the fabric hooped. Carefully trim close to the outline stitches for the rectangle, removing the fabric from the outside.

Image

9. Wind a bobbin with the same thread that you will use for the final satin stitch. Stitch the last pass of the rectangle – the satin stitch. Remove the hoop. Carefully snip close to the edge of the satin stitch to remove the case from the stabilizer. Run a wet washcloth around the edge to remove the last traces of stabilizer from the satin stitch.

Image

10. Tuck a pocket pack of tissues inside
