Fabric Tooth Brush Pouch Sewing Pattern, Diy, Easy Travel Pouch

Another 15 minutes project from The Design House of Blissful Sewing, the DIY Fabric Brush Holder! This is the easiest project I have made and extremely useful too. This can be your perfect companion during travel and what more? You can wash it with your other laundry and it comes out clean and dry!.

All you need is a  small wash cloth  that  is available in every supermarket.

Fold it almost half way up, just enough to cover almost half of your tooth brush.

Align the sides and draw four lines using a fabric pen, dividing the towel into four equal parts as shown above. Insert two pieces of satin ribbon, about 10 inches long, just in between the two layers of the wash cloth as denoted by the arrow and pin it in place.

  Also pin at each line to prevent the layers from moving.

Sew along each line, taking  care to reinforce at the beginning and end, to form four pouches. It's better to complete the side seams first and then move on to the center stitches so as to avoid any folds.

Heat seal the ends of your satin ribbon and Voila our pouch is ready!

You can put your tooth brush, tooth paste, ointments or even scissors, roll it up and tie the satin ribbon as shown above.

Bulls Eye Pincushion, DIY, Pincushion Tutorial

Pin Cushion patterns seem to be everywhere on the internet these days but  nothing seem to impress me. I wanted to make a different yet fun pincushion and lo I came up with this bulls eye egg one! This pin cushion can be made in minutes, you don't need too much of supplies. Just dig in to your pile of scraps and grab a little bit of polyfibre, you are ready to start!.

 Here is the tutorial:

Lets first do the yolk. We need to trace an approximately 5" circle onto the yellow yolk fabric. Here I have used my salad bowl for that.

Now sew around the edge of the circle with a matching thread and needle. Take care to leave quite a long tail of thread at both the ends.

Pull at both the threads to form a pouch with the circle.

Fill the pouch with polyfibre and tighten the the thread to close the pouch. Tie a few knots to secure.
Lets go on to make the egg white.

Take two pieces of your white scrap, layer them and cut it in an irregular shape (like that of fried eggs), as shown above. It should measure approximately 5 & 1/2" across. 

Layer the two pieces and sew around the edge, leaving a small gap to turn it inside- out.

Turn the yolk  inside out and stuff the inside with polyfiber.

                         Sew the opening shut, using a needle and thread.

Now go on and add your yolk to the center of the white. You can either hand-sew it or hot-glue it to the center.

Voila! Our cutie pincushion is ready!
