direction ~ le challenge ~ tissue holders


ok so I have to be honest and say this was plan B. I usually like to tie my le challenge project in with something else I'm doing (my limited sewing time means this is kind of a must) so I had to rethink when plan A failed. Actually it didn't fail but I was hoping to have my English Paper Pieced mini finished by now. The 14th has snuck up on me and I realised there was no way I could get it done (even if I pulled a couple of all nighters). EPP is not for rushing!

So yesterday I looked at what needed to get done and handily I just wrote my Finish-Along list. Obviously I had to do a quick sew and Kelly's tissue holder tutorial was the perfect thing! She posted a clever and simple tutorial on instagram and I thought they would be perfect to add into end of year gift bags for my kids teachers.


This is such a fast sew, I encourage you to look at the tutorial and make a few! They'd be perfect to have on hand as extra gifts / stocking fillers. Cute to carry in your handbag and nice for kids school bags too. Thanks for sharing your tutorial Kelly! Six tissue holders complete and the first check off my FAL list.


I chose to make this for the le challenge theme because of the wonderful teachers my children have. Under their direction my kids have had really good school reports this year! Clever hey?! 

We always have amazing, creative people linking up so come and take a peek and join in if you have a finish that ties in with the theme 'direction' at le challenge
