Travel pouch out of a washcloth

Every time we travel, (which isn’t often because…#homebody) My daughter pulls out this fun travel pouch that is made from a wash cloth. It holds all the bathroom stuff she needs and she literally just leaves it in her suitcase so she never has to worry about forgetting her toothbrush! So…I finally decided I needed one too. (oh…and if it gets dirty-you get to just throw it in the washer! BONUS!)

And let’s add another bonus….easy and takes a washcloth and a ribbon.

You will spread out the washcloth and fold up the bottom. You want it deep enough to hold things..but not so high up that the toothbrush is sticking out of the roll. Grab the supplies you are going to put in it and use them as a guide!

Then measure out. Once again…keep in mind what you are putting in there. You could make one that is purely for all the family’s toothbrushes and toothpaste. So your pockets won’t be that big for each toothbrush (and a toothbrush holder would be perfect for camping!)

You will need to sew the two sides and along each pin.


Now add the closure. I used a ribbon but if you have some of the cute stretch elastic it would work the same!

I just sewed the ribbon on a place where I had already sewed. 


and me..being me decided to add a little vinyl … (I used the beautiful from this cut file! )

and basically that’s it! picking out what kind of ribbon I wanted to use was the hardest part! Fill up with your supplies (I suggest buying a new set so it’s just ready to go!)  Roll up and tie!
