Hanging storage for toilet paper

Make It And Love It

To prevent your rolls of toilet paper from cluttering up the reduced space in your room, a trick is to make a storage for toilet paper. Start by measuring the circumference of your rollers. Double this number and add 15 cm. Do not forget to also measure the width of the rollers and add 5 cm to the measurement found. When your calculations are done, cut two pieces corresponding to the measurement of the first and second calculations. Then place your strips right sides together and sew the sets, leaving a margin and an opening at one end. Cut the four corners being careful not to cut the wires. Turn the fabric over and make two small pieces of fabric which you will then sew on your first creation. The last step is to sew in the middle of the first creation so as to leave two openings. You just have to place your rolls of toilet paper. Double the circumference of your rollers and add 15 cm. * More info on this DIY: Make It And Love It *
