stocking fillers

Thanks to Melinda Quilts Etc for her tutorial on pocket tissue pouches
they are addictive and take only 4 rows of straight sewing, but have a nice finished look to them
Here is my version:

Cut 2 rectangles fabric
5 1/2 " x 6 1/2"  = exterior fabric
5 1/2" x 7 1/2 " =  contrasting lining fabric

line up one short edge of both pieces, right sides together and sew  with 1/4" hem

Now line up the opposite short edges and sew with 1/4" hem, don't worry that the fabrics are different lengths, thats right

turn the tube you have sewn inside out and press

turn it over

fold the 2 short ends to the middle

hem each short side at 1/4 "

neaten up raw edges with pinking shears

turn inside out and use pointy object to turn out corners

fill with pocket tissues, best to unwrap them but keep them same way up in pouch

cute huh?

beware , they multiply if you don't watch out
