Make a Tissue Pouch for Binders
Sniffles happen. Most kids are happy to use a tissue if they have one handy, but too often the sleeve is the most convenient! Try this simple solution: craft a tissue cozy that fits neatly in a 3-ring binder so your first grader is never far from a clean tissue. With your child's help, you can put the cozy together in 20 minutes, using little more than a piece of fleece fabric, a button, and a few sewing supplies. She'll learn a handy new stitch now, and be prepared for sniffles later!
What You Need:
- 7" x 12" piece of fleece fabric
- Transparent tape
- Embroidery thread
- Tapestry needle
- 1 large shank button
