I usually carry around a pack of Kleenex in my purse but it tends to look pretty battered after awhile.  The plastic tears and the tissues get mangled; so for some time now I've been meaning to make my own pocket Kleenex holder.  Being a Dr. Who fan I couldn't resist making it look like the Tardis.

Step 4: Fold

Centre the pack of Kleenex on the fabric (lining side down) fold the ends around the pack and pin it in place.  Sew along the ends. Turn it right side out and place the Kleenex pack inside to double check that it fits.

Step 6: Add door facade

  • Lay out the blue and white squares on the front of the tissue holder (three blue on the bottom and the white square on top on either side of the slit). 
  • Pin the squares and sew them on. 
  • Sew the white signboard to the top blue square on the left side. 
  • Sew the police box sign across the top.
  • With blue embroidery thread stitch the lines in the window.
  • Place the Kleenex pack inside and it's ready to go.
Note: If you don't want to hand stitch the squares but use a sewing machine instead you should do it before step 4, alternatively you can glue them on.

This is great! I can see your basic idea being used for a lot of different things expanding beyond Dr. Who. Well done!

Thanks! Yes that's true, if you are not a Dr. Who fan you can follow up to step 4 and personalized any way you want.
My allergies are AWFUL right now I might have to make myself one, if I get around to it I completely will and show ya. Again great job!

Great job! With all those tissues coming out it's like it's bigger on the inside, or something!
