Tissue Box Pouch
Hehe, I can't stop .... I made this out of a tissue box, cut holes in the sides, and tied together 6 fleece panels for the outside. Threaded fleece strips to hang it and cut slits in the fleece sides where the box holes were. Then i stuffed it with leftover fleece scraps. Peekaboo!!!
1- cut holes in a tissue box, or leave with just the one hole
2- cut 6 pieces of fleece that are 4 inches wider and taller than one tissue box side
3- cut 2 inch slits on all sides of the fleece pieces
4- trace the fleece hole size and cut radial slits from the center or just cut out the hole IMAGE
5- double knot 4 fleece pieces to another piece IMAGE
6- double knot the sides
7- poke 4 holes into top of tissue box and thread fleece strips (knotted at one end)
8- insert tissue box into fleece sleeve
9- knot top fleece to 4 sides
10- place fleece strips as liners inside the tissue box
11- cut slits on the free ends of the fleece hangers and thread a ring or clip through for hanging
i found it might work better to cut out the sides of the tissue box, only leaving the frame. that way there isn't a hard surface to sleep on. although it all depends on whether your glider likes it cushy or firm.
