Christmas gifts I made, tissue holders

These were a cute & simple practical gift. You know how those tissue packs get full of lint & fall apart in your purse? With these they don't! Mine is always in my purse. I saw the idea for it in a felt craft book (thanks for letting me borrow it Nata-Leigh!), which by the way, anything you can make with craft felt you can make with recycled wool! It was a simple rectangle of wool that overlaps a little. I liked using the hem of the sweater for the outside edge for a finished look. The pictures make them look unsymmetrical, but they look fine in real life.

The flower one looks wonky because I forgot to throw a tissue pack in it when I took the picture.

Who got that light blue one??? So silly! When I showed this to Kevin, he thought it was pretty cool, too. Ya ... a guy! Thinks 'resweatering' is cool.

Danielle got the blue one. I tried using a seam for the mouth instead of a hem. That's why that one is a little different.
