Toiletry Roll Tutorial

The Kiddo is going to sports camp this summer and I have a ton of stuff to pack for her. I decided I would do a few camp tutorials this week. If you kids are anything like mine packing can be a nightmare and you know they will not come back with everything they left with. I found that if she has a place for everything she will remember everything.
Here is a great travel tote idea.
Materials:

1 hand towel – (A wash cloth will make a great small roll)
Ribbon – grosgrain is the most durable
Marking utensil – I started with a pencil then chalk but pinning as I went worked best with this towel color.
ruler
Basic sewing supplies
Step 1

Lay out the towel wrong side up.

Fold towel up leaving a lip at the top of at least 2″.
Step 2

Measure the ribbon based on the size of the towel. I choose 1 and a half-length. The long side will wrap around the roll and tie to the short side.

Pin the ribbon in place.

Straight-stitch both ends be sure to back-stitch securely along the folded edge.

For added security I 3 point zig zag stitched the edges.
Step 4

Measure and place Items. You can use your items to decide your measurements.

Or you can measure basic pocket sizes.

I choose four 4″. Two 3″ and two 1.5″ pockets. (You can see a few of the chalk lines. They help to stitch in a straight line)
Step 5
