This was a project I’ve been meaning to do for a while and I just hadn’t gotten around to it. Which is funny because it took all of probably 10 minutes. My sewing machine is packed up so my mom helped by sewing it for me. Which was probably for the best because if I had sewn it, it probably would have been an hour-long project. Are you on Pinterest? Head on over and follow me!
And as per usual there are no before or during photos. I’m trying so hard to get better at that! These photos are pretty bad. I was at my parents’ house and forgot my camera. These are photos from my cell which are terrible. I just got a new phone and the camera is worse than my old phone!
You start with your supplies: 1 wash cloth and ribbon. I picked up the wash cloths for $2.99 and my mom had ribbon remnants so I used what she had. I laid out each item I’d be rolling – toothpaste, toothbrush, floss tool, extra flossers. Then I folded up the bottom of the wash cloth to make a pocket and pinned lines depending on how wide each slot needed to be.
My mom sewed the lines so that I then had a little pocket for each item. To finish it off she sewed the ribbon on one end. I made one for me and one for Al. If we used regular toothbrushes it would all fit in one, but since we use electric they’re much bulkier so I made us each one.
Then you just roll it up and tie together. The best part? No slime from tossing your toothbrush in a Ziploc bag when traveling and its completely machine washable! I wash them in one of those mesh bags so that the ribbons don’t get all caught up in the washer.
Have you been working on any Pinterest project’s lately??
