Beginner Sewing Project: Towel and Washcloth Organizers

Use towels and washcloths to make useful organizers for the bathroom!

Use a bath towel to make the basic hanger for the pockets. To make an organizer that hangs from the shower curtain rod you have a couple of choices. You can fold one short end of the towel over, stitch straight across it, then slide it onto the rod. Simply slide it off when it's time to launder. Another option is to sew Velcro along the top. This way, you don't have to take the rod down to launder the pockets.

Use Velcro that's not too wide. Position it along one edge of the towel, on the backside, then stitch along both long sides and both short sides of the Velcro. Fold the Velcro part of the towel over and mark the spot where it meets the rest of the towel. Make sure the fold is large enough to accommodate the rod. Pin the Velcro to the towel and, again, stitch around all four sides of it.

Whether you're using Velcro or just stitching to make the rod pocket you'll now lay the towel on a flat surface. Select wash cloths to make the pockets for the organizer. Position them in the order you want to make the amount of pockets you desire. The wash cloths can be arranged so that there are two, orderly rows of them or you can just randomly place them as you wish. Pin all the wash cloths onto the towel then set off to sew them in place.

If you want to make some smaller pockets you can cut the wash cloths down, but when you do this, they'll often shed or unravel. To prevent that from happening sew ribbon around three edges of the cut cloth. Now sew one end over to make a hem across the top of the pocket. Big or small, sew the pockets around three sides and back-tack them at the two top corners.

Using fabric glue and/or stitches you can embellish the organizers with appliques, fabric flowers, silk flowers, fake jewels, felt shapes and more. To make an organizer that hangs on a wall simply wrap the end of the towel over a café curtain rod and hang.
