Tissue Pockets

I don't think ladies carry little pocket tissues anymore. Life has improved. We are encircled with fans and air-conditioning and there's free serviettes at local food outlets and restaurants. However, these are handy to have around just in case.

These tissue pockets secure those little pocket tissue avoiding early tear ups and crumple. Bright colors of our batik Terengganu with satin edges to compliment and for a serene look.


Start with a 7" by 5 1/2" rectangular. Sew piping on both short edges. Right side up, fold to center short sides. Sew the raw edges, edges aligned, with 1/2" seam allowance. You basically have the tissue pocket done with the right side in. Turn the the tissue pocket bringing the right side out. Push corners with blunt pencil and form the rectangular tissue pocket. Voilla.

Good Luck!

P.S. Let me know how you like this tutorial. Maybe, just maybe, I will share with you more in future!

I did a few but decorated them with lace.

Hi anonymous, yes, adding lace would be very sweet especially if you use floral motif fabric like those english cotton. If you want to share it with us do post it at our Sulam Sayang Facebook page.
