Masks are necessities these days for allergies and keeping viruses away. With your mask, you would always want to carry a tissue packet. Why not make a convenient tissue case with a pocket? All you need to do is just fold the fabric and sew. The featured fabric is the WILD FLORAL from the egg press series. This cotton 100% thin muslin fabric is perfect for making small items.
Fabric shown for this sample:：
Size: 10cm (l) 13cm (w – when folded in half)
We interviewed Satomi about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
To take advantage of the classy and clean design, I came up with a small item that can be used everyday.
KF:: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
What I wanted was a tissue case that allows you to carry things like a band aid or sanitary items together. So this case has two pockets. It also helps you to organize the items in your purse.
KF: What are some tips for making this case?
If the fabric’s design does not go in one direction, you will be able to use only one piece of fabric to make the case.
KF: How should we use this case in everyday situations?
A pocket tissue case is a girl’s must-have item. Once you learn how to fold the fabric, you can quickly and easily make it. Why not use your favorite fabric to make a piece? It will make you look even more lovely. If it is made with a gauze fabric, it can be used as a handkerchief in emergency situations. To keep the flaps closed, adding a snap button is a good idea.
KF：Thank you very much, Satomi! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
With the front sides facing each other, align the fabric where it is marked with ★ in the first picture. Sew together the fabrics with 1cm seam. ※ Make sure the patterns are aligned in the same direction. Where it is sewn together is going to be the pocket opening of the flap.
