As I get ready to travel and am packing up, I am reminded of when I first started sewing back in 2012. You see, I was looking for simple homemade gifts that I could easily put together. After checking pintrest, I came up with making a toothpaste roll and modified a pattern to look a bit snazzier than what I found.
Tutorial here. Once made, they are great to travel with!
Basically, what you do is you take a wash cloth or a hand towel and cut so that the top and bottom are able to fold over the height of a tooth brush. Then, you pin a piece of fabric to it and sew around the edges.
Once turned inside out, you fold up the end and add an elastic band and space stitches vertically to hold your toothpaste and tooth brushes.
The end product is pretty cool because it not only folds over from top to bottom on the toothbrushes (and keeps them clean) but it also rolls up for easy packing.
Oh – and one other idea – I made a bunch of these as Christmas gifts. Mom didn’t like the idea that it was for toothbrushes, so she made it work for her earrings and necklaces. Viola. Magic.
