Tools and Materials:
1 pair US#5/3.75 mm knitting needles (straight or circular as you prefer)
tapestry needle
coilless safety pin or other removable stitch marker
tape measure or ruler

Tissue Box/Baby Wipe Cozy:
tissue box or baby wipe box for use as a fitting model
Stuffing (such as scrap yarn, cotton batting, polyfill) for topping(s)

Stuffed Pillow/Toy:
Stuffing (such as scrap yarn, cotton batting, polyfill) for base and topping(s) or foam padding, cut to appropriate size

Yarn
My test knitters and I used Blue Sky Alpacas Dyed Cotton for the samples in the photos. Blue Sky Alpacas Cotton is a worsted weight 100% cotton yarn that will shrink a little after washing. You may substitute any smooth worsted weight yarn of your choice; be sure to check your gauge if a close fit is important to you. Because it is knit at a tight gauge (to keep the stuffing from leaking), some test knitters reported finding it uncomfortable to knit with the cotton; you may want to substitute a worsted weight yarn with some bounce to it, like Cascade 220, Ella Rae Classic, Plymouth Encore, Lion Brand Wool-Ease or Red Heart worsted.
