Toilet storage completed

From this messy
To this tidy
For Mothers Day last year my boys made me a gorgeous Rimu shelf for the toilet. I did not like having all the clean toilet paper in the basket on the floor as well as feminine products on the windowsill that the boys had to look at.

The shelf took it all out of sight - situated above the door. But all I did was chuck the stuff up there. I have had this project in mind ever since the shelf went up. I made a container to put that feminine stuff into so that no one had to look at it. The inside fabric was a first aid fabric I was given in a fat quarter swap. The outer fabric is hessian. There is a very solid stiffening ironed to the hessian to ensure this keeps it's shape.

I am thrilled with the container, pleased that the shelf now looks tidy and one more job ticked of my to do list.

I also finished the other - shirt into apron - that I needed to do. One more Christmas present made.

  2. Thats a great little container...I'm with you on putting them out of the way...I have the same problem here! Also I love your shirt aprons...they are a brilliant idea :)

  3. Love your toilet storage and apron. I saw an apron like that in my LQS. I think it's really clever!

  4. Both the storage basket and apron look great. I love to sew but hardly find the time anymore. One day, soon hopefully, I'll be able to sew again. It's so relaxing!


Thanks so much for stopping by. I love that you took time out to comment on my blog.
