Our bathroom is short on storage and I apparently have a ton of hairbrushes with no place to put them. I remembered that Martha Stewart had an idea for an organizer made with a hand towel so I set to.
Here is what I did:
I bought and pre-washed a hand towel that matched my other ones.
I bought a 1/2" dowel rod and made a channel on the end for it to slide through. We left about 1 1/2" on each side and used a saw to cut off the dowel and sand the ends.
I took a look at my hair-grooming collection and wondered why I have so many brushes when I basically wear my hair in a ponytail every day.
I sewed on a little flat pocket for a comb holder. I just measured the comb, added extra allowance so I could turn the ends under for seaming.
To make the pockets, I folded up the end of the towel in a double fold and slipped the hairbrushes in to make sure the pockets were deep enough.
Channels were sewn where I marked them.
Hairbrushes were slipped into place. Dowel rod found its home. Grosgrain ribbon made an appearance on the ends and Jeff put a hook on the bathroom door.
