Quick Pocket Tissue Holder Tutorial

My 5 year old's nose is constantly running.  He drooled a lot as a baby which meant his clothes were always wet.  But now, he just loves to wipe his snot on his sleeves.

Naturally, as his mother, I tend to remind him 100 times a day to grab a tissue and wipe his nose.  It is a daily battle and we are getting better at it.  But since consistency in parenting is so important, I try to carry a package of tissues in my purse or car to keep up.

As is typical with children, the plastic container for the tissues is always being destroyed, so I figured it was time to learn how to sew a pocket tissue holder.

I looked at many design and decided to make this interesting crisscross pattern.  It makes the package a bit more intriguing and makes tucking the tissue package inside super simple.

And since it is made with simple cotton fabrics, if it gets dirty or falls prey to the preschool booger wiping, it can be thrown right into the washing machine and come out nice and fresh.

Plus, this is a great beginner sewing pattern.  With just a few straight stitches you'll have your own quick and useful tissue pocket.  Make a bunch for friends and family for gifts or just one for your own backpack or purse.
