Starting Somewhere: Sewing A Kleenex Box Cover - Woohoo!
Well, I finally broke out of my sewing rut and started a project at long last. A miracle I know! It's a tissue box cover - I mean how much attention is a tissue box going to get - not much - so I thought it was a good start. If I mess up I won't be horribly upset because it is just a tissue box cover - not a cute bag or lovely tote. Sadly, the end result wasn't quite what I was hoping for. I at least managed to get my seams straight - it's my measuring and cutting that needs the focus now. Next time I am going to pull an old tissue box apart first to take better measurements. Other than the tight squeeze it looks pretty good I think!
I will probably rip out those tan stitches later when I get a more color coordinating thread - for now it works.
Here's the link to the tutorial - thanks, Lara, from Kiri Notebook for getting me started!
