Tissue Box and Facecloth

Once you've tried basic projects, add polish to your powder room with a custom tissue box cover, which is a bit more challenging to make.

  • Washcloth

  • Sewing machine


  1. Weave 5 swatches on a 6-inch square loom.

  2. On a sewing machine, sew 4 swatches together side-by-side, allowing for a 1/2-inch seam (use pins to hold swatches in place).

  3. Sew 2 end pieces together to form a tube.

  4. "Miter" seam allowance at each top corner.

  5. Cut remaining square into 2 rectangles; sew a zigzag stitch along cut edges of both.

  6. To form top, sew on both rectangles (allow for a 1/2-inch seam) so edges create a slit for dispensing tissues.

  7. Sew six 4-inch swatches of woven twine and cotton boucle yarn for a textured washcloth.
