Simple Sewing Projects

These are some of the things I worked on this weekend. The tissue holders and the mini wallet match pocketbooks I have made. I plan to make some of the tissue holders in red for a small Valentine's Day gift for friends. I can make use of some of the vintage trims I was given. I'm also thinking of including a tissue holder as a surprise in eBay packages.

I covered the buttons with fabric and will sew them on the pocketbooks made from the same fabric for the top closure. I made one pocketbook with a magnetic snap closure which turned out well.

Well, I'm off to play grandma today!

Love your simple projects. Those are the kinds of things I need to do to organize my pocketbook. What a wonderful idea to enclose the tissue holder with your ebay packages. You will be rated a "top seller" in no time!
