Travel toothbrush holder

My family and I are off on a short holiday tomorrow, so while the little man napped today, I packed, and made us a travel toothbrush and toothpaste holder! You see, we never have anywhere suitable to store our toothbrushes when we travel, and it annoys me!

Made from trouser leg fabric, leftover from a recent pants-to-shorts refashion, thrift-ed elastic, and a small piece of waterproof clear plastic tablecloth (which I use to make food wraps) for the inside to protect fabric against wet toothbrushes.

Before - trouser leg

After - toothbrush holder!

The flap folds down, I wrap it in half, and it holds neatly in place with elastic

* Hooray for toothbrush holders *
