Since starting my job as a teaching assistant in January I have ended up with a different cold every weekend.
And you know know what that means? I've been going through a lot of tissues.
But that's not what prompted me to make a tissue box cover. That was because I've recently moved my bedroom around a bit so now my tissue box is more on display.
I wanted to make a simple fabric cover and started by cutting apart a tissue box to get the pattern.
Yes, I use man-size tissues.
I cut the fabric to size and then sewed up the corners on the sewing machine.
I put the cover on the tissue box and to my surprise it fit first time.
After hemming the bottom of the cover I used the box as a guide for making the hole in the middle.
I decided on a diamond design for the hole where the tissues come out simply because I thought it would be easier to sew than an oval.
