Mi rinitis crónica me hace estar usando pañuelos constantemente y, la verdad, no es muy “elegante”. Así que he pensado que si tengo una bonita funda para guardarlos quizá desvíe un poco la atención de mi nariz. Os cuento como la he hecho.
My chronic rhinitis makes me use tissues constantly and, really, it’s not very “elegant”. So I thought that if I have a nice cover to keep them, perhaps I could divert attention from my nose. I’ll tell you how I made it.
1- As you see, I used felt. I cut a 6.2’’ x 6.6’’ piece, using the size of a pack of tissues as a reference.
2- As ornament, I sewed some lines using running stitch 0.4’’ from the edges. To keep lines straight, I marked them on the reverse side.
And I have added some circles of felt that I have glued with silicone (you can also use glue for fabric) and I sewed a button. The question is to add a small ornament, so you may think something you like (some leaves, an owl, …). Felt is very easy to work.
3- Then fold the felt leaving the opening just in the middle, as in the photo, and sew the lateral edges. I have made a double backstitching because I thought it was more original, but it’s not necessary.
I like the result 🙂
