I love Valentine’s day, I love getting Valentines and I love giving them. This year I wanted to make a little Valentine treat for a special group of people who make my life easier. I decided on kleenex covers. I make them all the time because I don’t know a female who can’t use one. Some people (like me) have them in their purse. Other people put them in their car, their desk or backpack. Life is full of sneezes and those purse packs tend to disintegrate. Here are step by step directions for making one, they are fast and easy!
First of all select two fabrics, one for the outside and one for the inside lining. The inside peeks out so it is a bit bigger. Cut the outside piece 6 inches by 7 (or even 7 1/4). Cut the inside piece 6 inches by 7 1/2 (or 7 3/4 if you have the extra 1/4 on the other piece.)
Fold the piece so it overlaps more or less in the middle and the “tube” of fabric is 3 inches wide. Pin,.
Turn inside out and put in the purse size kleenex.
Isn’t it fabulous? And so easy! And inexpensive! I made them for the Hemingway book club and many other book clubs, holidays and any other excuse I can think of. I buy my purse sized kleenex from Peapod, package of eight for about 2.80 which can be the price of one card. It isn’t hard to make a nice thoughtful gesture plus keep some noses clean!
