Today’s pin is based on a product sold on Etsy, I toothbrush/toothpaste roll. I saw, I pinned and I bought some cute facecloths to make my version. Here is where the trouble began….. although it looked cute, when I started to measure mine out I realized that
a) the toothbrush is exposed at the top and
b) if there are two toothbrushes in one they would touch…EWW!
I’m a bit of a germ-a-phobe (i don’t think that’s actually a word but if it is.. I am one) and I just couldn’t bring myself to make mine that way. I packed away the cute facecloths for another day and butchered a small hand towel instead.
I cut mine at 20 inches and them trimmed the cut edge with ribbon (my facecloths were really cute so I needed to pretty up this brown towel if it was going to fill in).
I just kind of eyeballed where the fold would be and where I needed to sew lines for pockets (leaving a flap at the top to fold over and protect my toothbrush).
I also tacked on another piece of ribbon to tie up the roll.
Pretty darned cute if I do say so myself !
I am actually thinking these would make great gifts to drop off the the food bank. Done with some bright coloured towels from the dollar store and matching ribbon they would be awesome to take to a sleepover.
There you have day 4… completed after a long day at my booth at a Christmas Sale. I think for accomplishing all that I deserve a glass of wine!
