I have quite a few fat quarters that I have collected (hoarded) during the last two years…probably boredom shopping late at night…I have decided that I need to start using these up, so I have been scouring the internet for projects (other than quilts and clothing). I found a person on YouTube who makes the cutest things AND, I have learned quite a few new short cuts and tricks by watching them…
I saw these tissue holders made by @Animegirlie and went down the rabbit hole!
I modified them to fit the smaller and thicker tissue packs that I found at the Dollar Tree.
And, while they are reversible, the practical side of me knows I won’t ever bother to turn them inside out, so the next batch, I am just going to line them with plain solids and save the nice fabric to make more to give to everyone.
While on the YouTube channel, I also found a tutorial on making these darling zipperless pouches! I love them and boy, are they quick!
A nice matching set!
Here is the link to the tutorial, if anyone is interested:
Nice! What a great way to use up those bits of fabric.
I love these fabrics! awesome job!!
These are lovely, and so useful.
I’m currently out for a pizza with my DH and I’ve a bag by @Ewulotta and tissue holder by ??? I love having lettuce creations in my daily life.
Those zipperless pouches are cute! Thanks for sharing the pattern…I will have to make some
I am going to add some small tabs to the next ones because I think they can be used as little crossover bags as well…I have lots of straps from old purses that I can then also use up! Working through my stash!
You can really knock out a lot…I made a template converting cm to inches so it would be easier with the tools I have. Here is a picture of the sides…it can hold quite a bit!
@Edel …same here…perhaps you recognize what I carry in my large bag…
Great idea about the tabs!
Or I suppose we can size it up a smidge for crossover bags, or size it down a smidge to hold cards and cash?
He has a video for making cute card holders…my goal is to try out as many of the patterns as I can, until I get bored…lol…he also has the neatest small bags.
Or until you make a sizeable dent in your fabric stash?
I feel like I heard a maniacal cackle coming from AIMR’s neck of the woods just now with some "… as if that’s possible"s thrown in.
Wow! These turned out great!
Lol! My fabric stash is sizeable and no matter how much I try to destash, it keeps growing. It’s a mystery!
I have the same problem, and also no matter how many scrappy quilts I make, there is always a growing scrap pile
Yes, but it shows how long we have been friends and how well it has held up! Still loving it, and for many years to come!
These little pouches are awesome! Still planning tissue covers for stocking stuffers this year, coz these are adorable.
Yeah, I noticed the one I was using was a bit ratty, so I figured all the ones I gave as gifts a few years ago must be looking the same… …everyone is getting a new one!
