A commission – quick gifts

11 Dec

A good friend recently (last week) commissioned me to make little gifts that she could give to her work colleagues this Christmas. Last year I made keyrings with their initials on, which she tells me they all loved and still use:

So I had a think and suggested tissue pack covers, useful all year round and they look great too:

How appropriate that now my little boy and I have stinking colds!  I was trusted to make the fabric choices so had fun rifling through my stash (yes it does need a tidy).

There are a number of tutorials out there to make these (here and here) I’ve made up my own to fit the packets I use and to enclose raw edges too.

You don’t need much fabric for these, you could get 2 covers from a fat quarter.  The print that you see at the opening to the cover is the lining fabric.  You could use the same fabric inside and out but I like the ‘pop’ of something different peeping out.

Why not make a few to stuff in stockings ready for those winter colds?
