A new obsession - tissue cozies

How many is too much?

Heck, I don't even carry tissues but here is a whole mess of 'em! Just one more dang thing that employs small scraps of fabric. Thanks, If you are my friend, you will probably be offered a tissue cozy. I apologize in advance.

  • cut 4 pieces of fabric 4" X 6"

  • fold 2 pieces lengthwise, press with hot iron to set crease

  • stack remaining 2 pieces, wrong sides together

  • place the 2 folded pieces on top, with folded edges just touching

  • align all the edges

  • sew all the way around, using 3/8" seam allowance

  • trim edges

  • turn inside out
  • serger works okay but does not provide the crispest corners

  • NOTE: the middle fabric becomes the bottom outside
