March IMQG Challenge Entry

Yes, a tissue box cover for my second entry of India Modern Quilt Guild monthly challenge :)
I didn't join the February one, too much thinking and ended up doing nothing :(
This time, of course I was thinking what to make but less...a fellow member of IMQG told me so :) thanks Tina ;)

These are the rules of March Challenge :
1.Use ONLY two Fat Quarters, of which one should be solid, and one print.
2.Repeat - The ENTIRE project should be made from JUST these two fat quarters. And threads, of course!
3.No batting
4.You can use fastners like buttons, velcro, buckles etc but not embelishments. Even buttons should be used for purpose, not decoration.

Confused for sure...so many ideas with two fat quarters but I cannot use batting...headache! stomachache! all ideas gone in a second!  heheheh... Then I started searching for the ideas from a famous online shop, and decided that a tissue box cover will be the best.

I am not sure whether I broke the rules or not since I used less than two fat quarters *sigh*
Well better take a look, if I have better idea, I might smurf another from the cut-piece ;)


This tissue box cover will fit the rectangular tissue boxes that measures around 9" width, 3.5" height, and 4" depth, with matching buttons at the left and right as the opening in which you can pop-up the tissue easily.

What I like the most in finishing this project is that I cut the fabric, sew it, took the photograph, edited it, and posted in the same day!  So proud of myself :p so discipline and on time :D

Well, I hope I can join the April Challenge ...  Happy Sewing ;)

    1. Thank you Ma'am for your lovely comment...actually I stole the idea from a famous online shop and just changed the velcro with two buttons :) to make it a little bit different...but for sure I prefer buttons than velcro :)
