Toiletry Roll Tutorial

This project is definitely a beginner project and will only take about 5 minutes! How great is that?!?

You will need
--typical sewing tools
--fray check
--1/2 yard of ribbon
--1 wash cloth, fabric placemat, or hand towel
--matching thread

Instructions:

First, lay out your placemat or other cloth, fold the bottom up for the depth of your pocket and determine how wide you want your pockets and mark them with pins or just eyeball it.

Second, sew along each side from top of pocket to the bottom. Make sure to back stitch a few times for reinforcement.

Third, fold your ribbon in half and see the fold onto. The edge of your placemat or other cloth.

Fourth, fray check the ends of your ribbon.

Enjoy! Roll up the goods and tie in a pretty bow. I made this one for my boyfriend so I am sure there will be no bows, just knots. Either way though this is much better than a bag with the toothbrush at the bottom.

If you have any questions please let me know. I would love to see your completed toiletry roll :)
