I've often wondered why Kleenex didn't have cuter designs (and don't even get me started on the country-cutesy designs on paper towels!). Target's tissue boxes are better, but I can't get there often and their tissues aren't as soft. I have long admired this tissue box cover by Lotta Jansdotter, but I was too
cheap frugal to buy it so today I made my own.
I used some of my favorite Ikea fabric (note-to-self: buy more of this) with a little oyster white bias tape around the bottom. It could use some refinement - the inside seams are raw for example, but it's a vast improvement. Here's a shot of the top:
With my allergies, I go through a ton of tissues so I might have to make one for every room in the house!
