DIY Friday: Kleenex Holder
It’s Friday! Time for another DIY craft!
Lately my purse has been cluttered with loose Kleenexes. It seems like I have had so many colds this year!
So I made this cute, little, envelope, Kleenex holder to try and gain some organization!
It is such a simple, everyday thing, but when you take the time to embellish it, you can make it extra special!
To make it, you will need
Can you tell I have been having fun photo editing lately?!
Step 1: Using a ruler and pencil, mark the lines on the wrong side of the fabric as shown in the picture.
Step 2: On the right side of the fabric sew the beads on as desired.
Make sure that you only sew the beads in the 1 1/4 by 4 inch rectangular strips.
Step 3: When finished beading, position the wrong sides of the two 6 by 6 inch fabrics together. Back to back.
Step 4: Fold about a quarter of the 1 inch ends over and sew securely down using your machine.
Step 5: Then fold those same ends over again. Creasing at the one inch mark. Pin in place.
Step 6: Bring the 4 inch sides to the center, folding the 1/2 inch ends in and under. Pin securely.
Step 7: Lastly, hand stitch all four folded ends to the back. Creating a pocket down the center.
The instructions may look quite difficult, but it actually is very simple when you sit down and do it!
