Easy Reversible Pocket/Purse Tissue Covers

Sunday, April 6th, 2014

This is not a new project.  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.  As far back as I remember, pocket tissues packaging had  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.
