Tissue Box Cover

I always have tissues on hand because I suffer from seasonal allergies but it is difficult to get a box that matches my decor so I thought I would make one that exactly matches the duvet and curtains I made a few years ago.  Fortunately, I had some scraps left over and had a close to matching lining remnant that was just enough to make a fabric tissue box cover to match.

What you will Need:

  • Remnant of outer Fabric
  • Remnant of Lining Fabric
  • New Unopened Tissue Box
  • Standard Sewing Supplies

What you will Need: Tissue Box Cover

Step 1: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Measure the top of the box and add 1 1/4″ to width and the length.  Measure Each side of the box and again add 1 1/4″ to the width and height.  My measurements for the standard Kleenex box were 4 3/8″ square on the top and 4 3/8″ x 5″ on the sides.  I added 1 1/4″ to each of these measurements to get the final numbers of 5 5/8 square on the top and 5 5/8″ X 6 1/4″ on the sides.

Step 2: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Cut the five pieces you just measured from both the outer and lining fabrics.

Step 3: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Lay the top of the box wrong side up.  Take the cardboard oval from the tissue box and place it in the center and draw around it.  My oval was not a complete oval but I filled in the empty space to make it an oval for ease in sewing.

Step 4: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Place the two top pieces right sides together and sew around the oval you just drew.  Cut around the inside of the oval leaving 1/4″ then clip the curves.

Turn the top right side out through the hole you just created and press.

Step 6: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Join the sides together by starting 5/8″ down from the height and stitching to the bottom using a 5/8″ seam allowance.  Do this for the outer fabric and then for the lining fabric.

Sew the Sides Together

Step 7: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Sew the outer top fabric to the outer sides and the lining top to the lining sides with right sides together.  Pin the lining out of the way to avoid getting it caught while you sew the outer fabric.

Sew the Sides to the Top

Step 8: Make a Fabric Tissue Box Cover

Turn the lining to the inside of the box cover.  Turn the bottom edges of the outer fabric and the lining 5/8″ so they are facing.  Press.  Topstitch all around the hem and you have completed your fabric tissue box cover.
