Saturday Project: Travel Toiletry Holder

When we travel, somehow someone always sticks a wet toothbrush and a half-open tube of toothpaste in the side of a bag and I end up cleaning up the mess when we get home. I was so excited to see this easy sewing idea for a travel toiletries holder. While you can buy ones that look like this on I got to thinking that I could make my own fairly easily. Here are the steps:

#1. Select a terrycloth wash cloth or hand towel. Size will be determined by what you want to keep in it. For us, we used a hand towel.

#2. Lay out the items that you want to put into the organizer. Toothbrush, travel toothpaste, comb, etc. on the towel and fold the bottom up to make one large pocket. Mark between each item to create several small pockets.

#3. Sew along your marks and the outside edges of the towel to create the pockets.

#4. Add a decorative ribbon to tie around your bundle when it is rolled up. Tack it down with a quick stitch in the middle. Make sure the ribbon is long enough to easily go around your bundle and tie.

#5. Embellish with buttons, fabric paint, etc. as desired.
