We just finished filming this little demo for one of my most favorite tools, the Snag Repair Tool.
The Snag Repair Tool is *sew* inexpensive and really has saved my day on more than one occasion.Â I’ve used it to repair snags in garments (woven and knit), upholstery, draperies, quilts and more.Â I’ve used it when quilting (both by hand and by machine) at times when my thread has broken unexpectedly and there wasn’t enough of a tail to pull through with my regular needle…this little guy solves the problem quickly and painlessly.Â I’ve used it with hand embroidery and silk ribbon embroidery too.
This is not a new project.Â I wrote it way back in 2008 and I’ve shared it with eNews subscribers over the years.
However, it makes sense to share it here and now with all our blog readers.
This pattern/project was developed in response to the change in packaging for pocket tissues.Â As far back as I remember, pocket tissues packaging hadÂ a slit in the top, center of the package so you could pull your tissue out one at a time. Somewhere around 2008 (may be different for other regions), the design of that packaging changed so the opening was placed on the long SKINNY side.
These covers hold your tissues inside and allow you to access the tissue from the long skinny edge.
