This week I have partnered with Tom’s of Maine to bring you a super quick DIY Toothbrush Case Tutorial which is perfect diy travel case throw in your overnight bag or carry in your purse as part of your everyday dental hygiene routine.  I was really excited to have the chance to try Tom’s of Maine’s new Luminous White Toothpaste.  

You may have noticed in the past that I love to use organic fabrics and eco-friendly products, I think that most of us in the handmade movement do .  As a mother of two girls, it is also important to me to use products that are not harmful,  and Tom’s of Maine Luminous White whitening toothpaste contains no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives and no animal testing. Plus, it’s gluten free.

And while I love using natural products, I don’t want to give up being able to use a whitening toothpaste on my teeth.  As I  become more conscious about what we put in and on our bodies, I am thankful that Tom’s of Maine Luminous White whitening toothpaste offers safe, effective whitening with only naturally-derived ingredients that work to remove surface stains for whiter teeth in two weeks.

Supplies needed for the DIY Travel Pouch : ¼ yard pleather, 1 9” zipper, leather needles, washaway wonder tape

 

Step 1 – Cut 2 4.5” x 9.5” pleather rectangles

Step 2 – With fabric right side up place zipper right side down along the long edge of the rectangle. Pin or clip into place.

 I prefer to use washaway wonder tape to hold the zipper to fabric.  It makes it much easier to keep the zipper from moving while sewing it.

 

 

Step 3 – Starting at the zipper top, straight stitch using 1/4in seam allowance from the beginning of the zipper to the end of the zipper.  Backstitch and secure the zipper in place, sew a few stitches.  You will then need to move the zipper pull to the bottom of the zipper to be able to continue sewing without it getting in the way of the presser foot.  I like to safety pin the top of the zipper to hold the pieces together.  Backstitch and continue where you left off and sew all the way to the end of the zipper.  You will have to pull the zipper foot back up to the top to sew the end of the zipper.

Step 4 – Repeat this step for the other half of the zipper, so both pieces will be facing right sides together.
