Tissue holders are pretty simple, and fast - which makes for a nice craft, because the reward of having a finished product comes quickly:)
You can of course, make them without the teeth and eyes - and they will look like these:
Cut 2 pieces of fabric, 6 1/2" x 7". I often use two different color fabrics for fun, even though you can hardly see the inside fabric when the tissues are inside.
I used jumbo rick rack for the teeth. I placed the rick rack along the same edge as the eyes, so that the rick rack was hanging over the edge by about 1/4". I wanted the 1/4" seam allowance to catch the rick rack about in the middle.
Using a 1/4" seam allowance, sew around the outside. Leave a 1"-2" hole along the LONG (7") edge.
In order to complete the tissue holder, you will fold the short edges toward each other - right sides together. (This means the color you want to end up on the outside of the tissue holder, will be on the inside.)
I usually overlap my ends slightly.
In order to make the teeth look right, fold the rick rack edge toward the center first.
Fold the opposite edge toward the center, overlapping the rick rack edge by about 1/4". Pin down.
Sew along the short edges with 1/4" seam allowance.
Turn inside out, press your corners out - and your done!
Of course, if you want to make one without the teeth and eyes, you can simply skip adding those pieces - like these ones here:
