Final ThoughtsI found a few areas in the making of the tissue box to be tricky, such as making the corners of the box and stitching the top of the cover to the sides. When making the corners it was difficult to line them up and achieve that sharp corner shape. I found it awkward when I was attaching the sides as I had used so many layers of material and it was difficult to stitch through all of them. I kept missing one of the layers and had to re sew over where I had already sewn. Overall I’m pleased with my new tissue box and it looks much better then the plain white shade it was before.
Have you made a tissue box? Can you offer any tips on making a better job at the corners? I would love to hear your view below in the comments section.
