kleenex pouch tutorial

I will attempt to show how to make these. I couldn’t find directions for these; I just figured it out sometime in the middle of the night and couldn’t wait to get started.
The original kleenex pouch I found at thriftstore (outside and inside):

Photo-1310Cut 6 pieces, each one 6″ X 4 1/4″
Photo-1311 Cut 3 of them in half the long way, not like I did it 😦
Photo-1312sew on bias tape or make or own from a strip of material – it’s easy.
Photo-1313Sew them together.
Photo-1314Trim and zig-zag around ends.
Photo-1317If you mess up, use something else 🙂
Photo-1318the backs

This is a cute way to make them:

I made some like the video said: Photo-1320

Photo-1321
Then I went back to the first ones I made, which is really the best, most fun and quick way. I like the way they look. Photo-1323

My total is up to 54 – Yay ! ! !
I would like to figure out how to make this kind: (I don’t know from where I copied it) IMG_5951 I think it’s really cute.
