Idea from:

For those who are tired of traveling with bacteria-infested plastic toothbrush cases or stinky wet Ziploc bags, here is an easy, affordable way to carry those travel toiletries without the fuss.


12×12 washcloth
Needle and thread or sewing machine
Spool of ribbon for decoration
Pins to hold things in place


Cut 24 inches of ribbon from the spool.

Fold up the bottom half of the washcloth to make the pouch. Put a toothbrush in to test the height.

Once you have the right amount of cloth, pin the bottom edge in place.

Either put two ribbons in place at the top of the fold before sewing or sew one long 24” ribbon into the middle backside of the cloth. (Second option in the example.)

Mark and sew the lines where to create the pouch.

The blog suggested to sew various widths for each pouch, leaving you room for things beside the toothbrush and toothpaste.

Stick the toothbrush and toothpaste inside, roll it up and have a fun trip!
