I finally tried a tutorial I've been meaning to get to, a cloth kleenex holder. I have really enjoyed having a lace kleenex holder given to me by my bosom friend, Robyn, from Brugge, Belgium. It is pristine and white (er...was pristine and white before living in my purse for months) and a whooole lot more aesthetically pleasing than the crinkly plastic wrap that purse-sized kleenexes come in.
I need about ten of these things, because I have to have kleenexes on me at all times. I decided to share the joy with my mom back on Mother's Day. Bella Dia's tutorial is actually for a Puffs pack of tissues, so I had to modify her measurements to fit my Kleenex packs, but it was the same steps for the rest.
I also added an overlap, a bias trim for contrast, and a button closure.
