DIY Travel Kit (No sew)

During summer time, vacation plans has become a default thing.When we planned one,I was in a absolute need for a travel kit to carry my toiletries .So I was searching a quick and easy idea of a DIY travel kit with some compartments as I don't like just throwing everything inside a pouch.And I came with this one and gave it a try.Today , I am sharing it with you all.Shall we start ?





Materials required :
1/4 yard of terry cloth
1/4 yard of printed cotton
Ribbon
Scissors
Fabric glue
Markers
Iron

If you have a sewing machine, you can make this just like cooking Ready to eat dishes :P.I promise it is just as easy as that.But as of now, lets talk about no sew version.

Step 1: Measure and cut the fabric.
1 piece in Terry cloth and 1 piece in printed cotton (Main piece)
Length ---> 9.5" (25 cm)
Width ----> 22"  (56 cm)
1 Piece in Terry cloth (Front piece)
Length ---> 7.5" (19 cm)
Width ---->22" (56 cm)

If you have 1/2 yard of terry cloth , you can make it as single piece, by adding both the length 17"( 44 cm).And just fold them to create compartments.(Step 3)

Step 2: Fold the hem of the front piece(0.5") and Iron.Apply glue and fold again to finish the hem.


Step 3: Divide the main piece into 4 equal divisions and mark them .Apply the glue(As shown) and place the front piece on to the main fabric to separate the divisions.Let the glue dry (Refer the package for hours to dry).You can also customize the widths according to your personal preferences.May be two small compartments for combs , tooth brush instead of one big one.

This is how it looks after gluing the compartments.


Step 4: Glue all the three sides placing right side of main printed cotton and right side of main terry cloth(Compartments attached side) facing together leaving the top portion open.Let the glue dry.Snip the corners(Picture below) to avoid bulkiness at the corners.(Be careful and patient while doing it and make sure you don't cut too much and create a hole).Turn inside out.Now, finish the fourth side.Fold half an inch of both the piece inwards and iron.Apply glue and leave it to dry.

Snip the bottom corners like this to avoid bulkiness.



Step 5: Measure and cut the ribbon.The length should be as long as to tie a knot and make a bow to secure the kit.Glue the ribbon to the middle of  front side of the 1st and 2nd panel.So that, you can fold the 3rd and 4th panel to the top of 2nd panel and 1st panel to the top of folded part to close the kit and secure it with a bow. Tada!!Now you can carry your own travel kit to next vacation.

For sewers: If you are sewing do this step first.Attach the ribbon to the printed cotton main piece before you start other steps.









So more worries about spilling of your body lotion ,wet tooth brush, etc.You now have a completely washable travel kit to carry your toiletries and to save your clothes from those spilling when you packed it in a hurry to vacate the hotel room.

Oh wait !!!Excuse me !! This is completely for all travel size toiletries and not for those big 12 fl.oz bottles.So, no worries about bottles poking out.I have shown you like that to give you an idea what all fits in. You know, even my small flat iron fits in !!!

Now , I am ready for next vacation. Are you ?? What are your plans for the next vacation ??How will you carry your toiletries ??Zip lock bags?? separate pouches?? Feel free to share your comments below or write to vikalpah@gmail.com.As always I happy to hear from you.

  18. This DIY travel kit is a practical and enjoyable project that offers a no-sew option for those who prefer a no-sew option. The kit uses terry cloth and printed cotton for organization, with compartments for toiletries. The kit is designed for travel-sized toiletries, avoiding bulkiness and preventing spills. It may not accommodate larger bottles. The kit offers a more organized and personalized option, appealing to those seeking a creative solution. Personalization is key, and fabrics with favorite colors or patterns can be used to add a touch of personal style. Customization is encouraged, and the kit can be modified to suit specific toiletry items. Stitching the seams instead of fabric glue can provide extra durability. Test the fabric glue on a scrap fabric before applying it to the main pieces. For eco-friendly options, consider using recycled fabrics or repurposing old towels and cotton materials. Small labels or tags can be added to each compartment for quick identification. Share your creation on social media or DIY forums to inspire others. Crafting your own travel kit ensures neat organization and adds a personal touch to travel essentials. Accidente de Camión Volquete

Supporting evidence may be required to justify alterations. Consult with a family law attorney to navigate the legal process effectively. Factors such as changed circumstances or new evidence can influence the court's decision.
