Supplies:

  • 1 washcloth
  • sewing machine
  • pins
  • scissors
  • tape measure
  • 24 inches of ribbon
  • lighter, optional

Steps:

  1. Fold the bottom of the washcloth up 4 inches. Pin in place and sew along both sides. I recommend back stitching for added strength, then trim off excess thread.
  2. Washcloth Travel Toothbrush Holder - fold up 4 inches of cloth and stitch ends
     
  3. Place the toothpaste inside and pin next to it to create a pocket for it.
  4. Washcloth Travel Toothbrush Holder - place tube inside to size for pocket

  7. Check fit the toothpaste and add a toothbrush. Place a pin to create a pocket. Remove the toothbrush and measure it so that you know how big each toothbrush pocket will be. Mine was 1 1/2 inches. Sew the pocket, with backstitching.

  9. Sew all of the other toothbrush pockets. I was able to make 4 (1 1/2 inch pockets) and the last part I split evenly, which made slightly smaller pockets, but I intend to use them for flossers.

  11. Cut a piece of ribbon, 24 inches long. Use a lighter to carefully melt the ends, to prevent fraying. Fold the ribbon in half and pin it just above the pockets. Sew it in place (see photo below).
  12. Washcloth Travel Toothbrush Holder - cut narrow ribbon for tie and fold in half pin above the pockets

  13. Fill the holder with toothpaste and brushes, roll it up, and secure it with the ribbon. Note: You can place the toothbrushes in bristle end down if you want, which would work well if they are slightly damp when you are packing them. Washing it after each trip will help cut down on germs too.
