How to make a Beautiful Fabric Tissue Box Cover with Pretty Peony Embroidery Designs

You receive:

10 x Design Files

Hoop Size:

5*7 Hoop x 5

6*9 Hoop x 5

You need the following for a Tissue Box Cover:

  • Fabric for Lining (fat quarter 18" x 22")
  • Fabric for Embroidery (fat quarter 18" x 22")
  • Thin Type Batting (approx 18" x 22")
  • Stabilizer - Cut away
  • Embroidery Thread of choice (only 1 color needed)
  • Optional: Trim for base of the Tissue Box (27" / 70cm)

Steps:

Step 1. Stitch out all the embroidery files.

You should have 1 x TOP panel, 2 x LONG SIDE panels and 2 x SHORT SIDE panels

Kindly note that for the 5*7 hoop, some panels need more than 1 hooping

  • Combine TOP 1 & 2 to create the TOP panel
  • Combine LONG 1& 2 to create the LONG side panels
  • Stitch x 2 SHORT to create each of the SHORT side panels

Step 2. Print the pattern and cut the LINING fabric for each of the 5 panels.

  • Add 1" seam allowance on all panels after the embroidery is done.
  • The outline on the printable pattern includes a seam allowance.

Step 3. Remove(cut) the batting and the stabilizer from the edge of the embroidered panels

Step 4. With a straight stitch on your sewing machine (SL 2.5) stitch the 4 SIDE panels to the matching sides of the TOP panel.

Notice that we will complete the lining (fabric with hearts) and the embroidery separately. In other words we will complete 2 covers.

Step 5. Close the side seams on the lining(hearts fabric)

Step 6.  Close the side seams on the embroidered section.

Step 7.  Close up look what the 2 sections looks like now.

Step 8.  On the embroidered section, fold the edge of the base. Secure with a straight stitch to create a neat bottom seam. (I used the tissue box to double check my measurements)

Step 9.  Once the embroidered section is secured on the bottom edge -use the outer-shell to measure the fold-over on the lining. Secure with a straight stitch.

Step 10.  Pin the seam and secure with a straight stitch.

Step 11.  The outer and inner shell is complete. We will now combine the 2

Step 12.  Place the embroidered(outer shell) and printed side (lining) toward each other. See image below.

Step 13.  Pin the "oval" shape of both layers.

Step 14.  Secure with a straight stitch on your sewing machine.

Step 15.  After the oval shape is stitched...

Step 16.  Cut through both layers as shown below. (You can cut more sections to ensure a neat edge when turned outside in)

Step 17.  View from the embroidered section.

Step 18.  Push the lining through this "center" hole, toward the inside of your Tissue Box Cover.

Step 19.  Close-up view...

Step 20.  Your Beautiful Tissue Box Cover!

Step 21.  And who said we cannot add a trim...
