Blue bird stamped tyvek tissue holder.

Used Tyvek to create this purse/bag size mini tissue holder.  Finished the ends by using the blanket stitch. Applied grommets to weave the narrow ribbon thru which makes it easy to add a new package of tissues when it becomes empty. Tyvek is a great "paper" to use for this as it is extremely tough.  I have one in my pocket and it gets crumpled but never tears etc.
Designed and stitched by Sandra Foster.
