I love these.  I used to have a diaper organizer that was very similar.  Did you have to cut them, or were you able to do this by folding and sewing?

Hey! Glad you like em.

It was one huge towel, so I cut it apart to have material for each organizer.

The towel holder is made out of two pieces sewed together (the back is one piece and the bottom and the sides make up the second piece). i put a clear plastic folder at the bottom to create a fairly flat surface.

The waschloth one is made out of four pieces (the bottom, the back, and the two sides).

I think it would be possible to make them with one piece (the towel one at any rate), but in order to use the material as efficiently as possible, i ended up using more pieces.

What a great idea! I don't have a linen closet, or even a spare drawer for my towels, so this might be a good solution for me. Thanks!

That was my problem too. My bathroom is too narrow for a small closet and I didn't want to hang any shelves up high...

The lime-ish green actually matches the color of my sink, bathtub, and toilet!!!  And yesterday I found the perfect shower curtain to match as well!

I like your organizers especially with the vintage look.  I sure wish they would make stuff like that now.  Towels now just don't last like they used too, but don't get me started   Smiley  I noticed the hangers you used, are they vintage also?  I actually have a collection of vintage hangers, I am so going to copy your idea.  Can you say "vintage"?  I will stop using that word now, I promise!   Tongue

That's so great! My mom used to have something similar, but for dirty clothes when my sister and I were kids. It was the same basic design, but had a zipper that went about 3/4 of the way up the front. We kept it zip till it was time to sort, unzip, unload, and we could take the thing off the hanger and toss it in the laundry if it ever needed a wash. (kids don't get the concept of wet clothes + time = stinky)
