Tissue Case - The quickest scrap fabric project ever?

I hate waste and try to use up every possible scrap of yarn or fabric after finishing a project, so when I spotted the instructions for this little tissue case I decided to whip one up immediately. Now that my sewing machine is in permanent residence on my desk, it meant that the whole thing took less than five minutes. 

Materials: Aside from a sewing machine you need only 22 x 15 cm of fabric, matching thread and a pocket pack of tissues. 

How to: Hem the two shortest edges of the fabric. Then, with the right sides together, fold those hemmed edges towards one another to make a 1cm overlap. Then sew along the folded edge at the top and bottom. Trim down the sewn seams and any bulky corners, before turning right-side out. Put your tissues inside and ta-dah! You have a finished object. 
I have to say I've ever used one of these before now, but it would be a nice thing to have if going to a wedding (matching a handmade outfit, perhaps) or to add to a gift package. Little Miss is going to make her own, as it's a perfect sewing project for a child  - she can use a sewing machine, but it would also work as a hand-sewn project for a younger child. If you'd like to make one of your own, you can find a step by step photo tutorial here. Details of the fabric used can be found on my previous post.
