The link to the tissue holder is not working

So many great ideas! I wish I had a week to try them all, but I need to pick one and make several for teachers. I agree that the mini lunch sack would be great!

I'd love to make the zippered school supplies case but I can't get to it. I tried to right click on the picture and on the link to open in a new tab but I just redirected me to this page. Odd.

the mini quilt lunch sack would be something most teachers would use.

Zippered school supply case? Still can't find instructions on making this! Can u tell us what happened and can u restore the pattern? Thank you for your prompt response. Pat

Great Ideas!

Zippered school supply case? No instructions are to be found?? I am teaching my three granddaughters and their friends to sew, this would be a perfect item for them, can you help? Thank you.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. It looks like this pattern moved, thus rendering our link broken. We apologize for the inconvenience. We're working on getting an updated link, so check back later and it should be back up! --Editors of AllFreeSewing

Any sewing projects for an eye glasses case?
