TED & Bobble . Tissue holder tutorial and a bow tie.

Im so sad as its time for Ted & Bobble to leave me to another lovely lady. To make our last night special we made a tissue holder tutorial ( of course tears will be involved tomorrow) and Ted got a little bow tie to match to add to his building wardrobe. 

Ted is very proud of his work.

Now for the tutorial,you will need :
40 cm of fabric (If you want to add contrast like me, use two)
Thread & needle
Sewing machine( optional)
2 buttons

Cut 2 square of 17.5 cm and sew a quilter foot around leaving a gap to turn
Turn right sides out  and hand sew the gap and press. Then use decortive stitches on the borders. I like using the edge of the foot as guidance.

Measure 5 cm both sides, mark and sew a knot by hand to hold it in place.

Fit the tissues and sew the buttons on the wrong side as they will close the tissues box for you.

  • Hehe, this is such a cute and funny tutorial, thank you! I hope blogger starts working for you again so you can get back to your favourite blogs…

  • I’m gona have a go at making this and as you know I am a complete beginner!! Silly question but what is a quilters foot? And would it be ok to use a thick raw silk material instead?

  • Hun, I don’t recommend using silk or floaty fabrics because they don’t press well.

    I sent you a photo of a quilters foot on twitter xx

  • Thanks so much for this! I can’t wait to try it!

  • Thank you. if this keeps my tissues from getting dirty and messy in my purse I’d be very happy.

  • thanks for sharing this tissue holder I have look at a lot but yours is one of the cutest I can’t wait to make some for my Red Hat Sisters

  • Love this idea – many thanks for sharing your how-to.
