I always like to have a few small gifts on hand to include in swap packages or birthday gifts. Tissue Covers are always a popular handmade item – they are practical and pretty – and are perfectly sized for your handbag or car. I made a few using sweet Liberty tana lawn, paired with polka dot linen and velvet ribbon. They are quick to construct – perfect for when you need a few gifts in a hurry. I love how the Liberty makes them extra special.
If you would like to make your own Liberty Tissue Covers, just follow our Back to School Tissue Cover Tutorial. The tutorial includes lots of step by step photos to guide you through the construction. They are really easy to make and are a great beginner project. You should be able to make one in under 30 minutes. Use Liberty Lawn for the main feature fabric, polka dot linen for the contrasting fabric, and velvet ribbon for the trim. I lined my tissue cover with white homespun. They are perfectly sized to hold a small pack of tissues.
The Liberty fabric used in this project is available from Ava & Neve and was part of their June Liberty Society bundle. As part of the Liberty Society you receive 10 pieces of Liberty fabric each month – many of them are new season Liberty. A great way to add to your Liberty stash.
The Liberty prints used in these Tissue Covers are Mauverina A and Amy Hurrell D. The Polka Dot Linen was from Etsy store SonSu. The velvet ribbon was from my stash. I hope to find more velvet ribbon that is slightly wider for my next batch of tissue covers.
