Tissue Box Cover for Amy


As a part of my swap with Amy I made her this reversible tissue box cover for her newly remodeled bathroom.  You can see pictures of their gorgeous new bathroom here.


I used the Pink Penguin Reversible Tissue Box Cover tutorial for the overall construction and Beki Lambert's applique design from Stitch Magazine for the design on the front.


Below is the back of the tissue box cover.  This simple strip of patchwork is intended to mimic the strip of green tile on Amy's bathroom wall.


And this is the reverse side.  I decided to make this one pretty simple since the other side is so busy!  I used my favorite grey Flora and Fauna print and appliqued an "F" in Kona Coal on the front for Amy's last initial.


Amy and I also swapped scraps, but of course I forgot to take a picture of the scraps I sent.  Oh well!  Hopefully Amy will enjoy all of her new modern scraps too!

Happy sewing,
Mary

  1. I'm always trying to hide my tissue boxes so they can be used, but are out of site. This is such a nicer alternative. If I get a spare hour I'll definitely be trying this one. Thanks Mary!

    I also like your new header...very cute.
