Purse Size Tissue Holder

Today's little project is compliments of one of Hunkie's Aunties!  She requested directions on how to make a purse size tissue holder.  She's hosting her Bunco group in August too and wanted to make some!
Here's the ones I made last year that she remembered!!
These are quick and easy and make great little gifts!
2-6 x 6 1/2 inch pieces of fabric
sewing machine
Optional: embellishment such as ribbon

Measure and cut fabric.

 With fabric wrong side together, fold edges of the 6 inch side inward no more than 1/2 an inch and iron down.
Do this on both edges of both pieces of fabric.

Then fold each edge inward to the middle, the edges should not lap, just meet.  Iron.

 {Edges folded in.}

Flatten back out and cut ribbon and lay on edge, then sew edges closed.

 Fold edges inward again,  if you're doing an embellished edge like I'm showing then, the embellishment goes facing down like in photo....

 Run a seam along the ends, I just use the foot peddle as my guide for width. 

 Turn inside out and you're done! 

 Fill with tissues and toss in your purse!!

See my Link Party Page for where I'm linking up at!

Happy Thursday!
