This refillable Pocket Tissue Holder is eco-friendly and cute! Just fold and fill with facial tissues and avoid the plastic entirely!
This quick knit is done in Moss Stitch with a small border using Garter Stitch for neatness. It’s a great way to use up partial balls of yarn too. It takes about 1-3 hours from start to ready to use! The perfect easy small project to tote around for train rides or traveling. Here is another version of Pocket Tissue Holder in Seed Stitch I made with more instructions.
