Pencil Case & Pocket Tissue Holder

After making so many wallets I wanted to stick to making small items and loved this pencil case and tissue holder.

You can find the tutorial for the pencil case at Nicola Forman Quilts


The tutorial for the tissue holder is so quick too make. It takes just minutes. I'm going to be making loads of these, they make good stocking fillers.  The tutorial doesn't mention to use fusible facing but I added it to mine to give them a nice crisp look.
You can find the tutorial HERE


I made the second one with the stripes going in the opposite direction.

  3. Very nice Maria! I made tons of those tissue cases years ago and gave one to everyone I knew. I made them for all my co-workers at the time too. I used scraps. The inside of your bag looks as pretty as the outside! Is this a longer version of the zippered bag that you made that's part of your blog header? Or does it just look longer in the photo?

  4. The zippered pouch is a great shape for a pencil case! They'd both make fabulous presents.

  5. So, you must really like the combination of the stripes, flowers & orange zip because you've got exactly the same in your blog banner LOL!! They look perfect as usual :)
