Fabric Tissue Holder

Can you see my halo glowing! I spent all day yesterday tidying out my craft room.  I didn't actually throw much out (!) but I did a fair bit of re-organising,  took all my craft fair stuff out of the big cupboard in preparation for Christmas and have all my sewing fabric and "accoutrements" at hand!  I even have a space on my desk for my sewing machine - although it's still meantime set up on the kitchen table as that's much bigger and handier for cutting etc etc .... :)

I now only need hubby to put me up a couple of "big" shelves so I've got a place for crafty books and can get all the other "non essential" stuff off my desk!

Okay, now onto the crafting bit.  I needed to make some quick raffle prizes for my sewing group, so browsing the internet I came across this tutorial for a fabric tissue holder by Fiona at Two Brown Birds.  This really is a very easy make (suitable for a beginner if any one fancies giving it a try!).






I'd like to link to Handmade Monday.








Okay dokes, that's me for now.  I probably won't "see" you again until next weekend when I have my Kaffe Fassett workshop! So looking forward to it.

Wishing you all a lovely week.  Thanks for popping in.

Suze xx

Absolutely love this idea.
I will sound as though I am living in a bygone era but every day I use a cotton hankie - I know, I am not even 50 and behaving as though I am an old Grannie LOL.
How wonderful to be attending one of his workshops. Before I discovered stamping I would work on large cross-stitch designs and also tapestries and have worked from his kits.
Have an amazing time and remember to tell us all about it!
Wishes
Lynne
P.S. Stop shining that halo!!!!!

These are fab! I made myself a tissue holder a while ago and use it all the time - much better than a plastic packet!

How classy it would be to pull one of these beauties out of my purse when I need a tissue! Really awesome, Suze!!

And, yes, a bright shiny halo award goes to you for all that hard work and reorganization! You know that makes my heart pitter-patter!! Hugs, Darnell
