Every year our elementary school has a Holiday gift shop for the kids to shop at. They always ask for donations of items to sell. This year I actually donated some handmade goodies.
Travel tissue covers!
I made 26 of these babies and delivered them to school yesterday. They were so easy to sew up. There are a lot of tutorials out there on how to make these. I chose one from Melinda Quilts because it seemed least complicated. I originally sewed one up using 1/4 in seam allowances and discovered it was a little too snug for the tissue pack. So the rest I sewed up with a slightly smaller seam allowance. It probably would have been better to cut the squares slightly bigger if I had it to do all over again.
And now goodbye November... Hello December!! We have the house all decorated for Christmas and I'm stitching up a few handmade gifts you can't see until January. I have high hopes of getting my letters and packages mailed soon so I can make a Christmas wreath for my door. Oh I wish I could sew a couple of Christmas pillows as well, but there never seems to be time for sewing Christmas decor in December. Maybe I'll plan better next year.
