They're very pretty; I'm not surprised they sold.

They are lovely, Carolyn. I agree with Linda. I'm not surprised they sold. So useful to have in your hand bag.

Sorry I don't have a link - Once I worked out how to do it I made a template with card, first couple of attempts were too small/wrong dimensions. There are 2 ways to do each of them depending if I used bias binding.

So with BB they are just single piece of fabric about 6 x 5 inches. Without I have doubled the fabric back so that the front is completely double.

So they didn't take long really I could do a few in an hour, and the tissues are 10p each - did splash out and get Kleenex!

I did have one that was already made by my friend that she had given me so had a bit of a head start :)

Sorry, I don't have a pattern. What I did was measure the tissue packet and cut a rectangle plus seam and hem allowance. I hemmed both ends of the pouch then folded them over (right sides together) so the hemmed edges were in the middle and stitched both ends. Turned through and put the tissue packet inside. (Minus the packaging so they were easy to get out).

My mum made some of these a few years back, little extra stocking fillers. I have one in my handbag all the time.

Lovely makes! xx
