How To Make A Roll-Up Toiletry Bag With A Sewing Machine
Fold the bottom of the washcloth up so that it's about an inch or two below the top of the washcloth.
Sew up both outside edges of the washcloth to make a large "pouch". Then sew a few straight lines up the middle of the pouch to create smaller "pockets".
Flip the washcloth over and attach the middle of the ribbon to one edge of the washcloth, about halfway up.
Flip the washcloth back over, fill the pockets with your toiletries, and you're done!
When you're ready to travel, roll the washcloth up and tie the ribbon around the middle to hold it closed.
No-Sew Roll-Up Toiletry Bag
Follow the same instructions above, except use iron-on hem tape or fabric glue instead of sewing along the edges and in the middle to create pockets.
If you don't have a sewing machine, you can sew this by hand with a needle and thread. Or you can make a no-sew version with iron-on hem tape or fabric glue. Either one will work great to turn a washcloth into a roll-up toiletry bag without sewing a stitch!
