Row 2: Skip 1st st. Working in back of st. 1DC in each st. across. (26 stitches) Ch 3

Row 16: Skip 1st stitch. 1 SC in each st across. End off and weave tail into your work. Attach contrasting color in 1st sc, ch 1. 1 HDC in next st. 2DC in next st.

Cut and weave ends into your work.


Using the tissue packet as a guide, and with the shell edge at the top , fold the bottom up to just below the top of the packet. This should be row 13. Sew seam at each side to form a pouch for the packet. Sew button to middle of first row of DC on the pouch. (See photo for placement.) Fold top down over pocket and button. Folding back the opening of the tissue package will allow you to remove tissues from the packet.

When I flipped to your picture it flashed as a set of false teeth until I looked at it properly. Thought you might get a kick out of that.

Does any one know how to make a knitted pocket tissue holder? I cannot crochet although I tried years ago, but with no luck. Regards, Sweetgrass

To Siris, I thought the same thing when I first pulled up the post-I saw the pictures from the corner of my eye and thought 'false teeth'! Amazing what the mind's eye sees...

Thanks Harlean -You always give us such nice crafts to make in your posts. A person doesn't even have to buy those little tissue packets to use this - just fold a stack of kleenex.


The case will keep them neat; in my purse, the kleenex always rubs things and deteriorates, and when I need one, it's just about useless!
