This absorbent, terrycloth pouch is the perfect place for your toothbrush and paste when you are away from home. Four 3 inch wide pockets allow for four toothbrushes to travel by plane, car, or across town and stay dry and sanitary while away from home. Or it’s the perfect place to tuck 1-3 toothbrushes and your favorite tube of paste! No more soggy baggies, wet plastic caddies, or unsanitary solutions!
I loved this toothbrush organizer for the simple fact that it keeps everything in a nice clean place. It is easy to ask the boys to grab their Toothbrush Wrap as they pack up to go to Grandmas every Thursday night!
What you are going to need:
- Matching Thread
- Cotton Twill Ribbon
- Straight Pins
Place your washcloth as shown.
Fold the bottom part up. This part depends on your preference of how deep you want the pockets to be. My wrap measures down 8″. Use straight pins to keep the pocket folded up in place.
Sew the pocket sides together. So finished it should look like one big pocket.
Now figure out how many pockets you want, measure, and pin to mark.
I did my wraps with three pockets. I measured from the left side in to 5″- and pinned/marked.
Then just sew a straight line up from that mark on the pocket.
Now from the left side of your wrap, measure 5″ in and pin/mark.
Do the same, sew straight up the pocket.
Now we are all done with the pockets! Grab your Twill.
Flip your Wrap over. (Pocket side is facing down)
Cut a 19″ piece of Twill.
Let 7″ lay over the edge of your wrap as shown above.
Now sew that baby down. Right on the edge! Go back and forth to make sure it’s not going anywhere!
Now see above that is where the other stitch is going to go! You want to line it up that stitch we already had sewn for one of the pockets.
This is what it will look like all done!
Roll it up.
Tie it and see how your twill ends lay.
Fold the end under
Now add all your goods! Each of my boys have a different color Wrap!
(yes that is one of those nasty retainer cases! –eek. kind of makes me gag just lookin’ at it! BUT it is safe and snug!)
