DIY Toilet Paper Holder Tutorial

I was on Pintrest and found this cute little Toilet Paper Holder thing and I was so excited because I thought the link had a tutorial but come to find it DID NOT so this beginner sewer decided to not only do it myself from scratch but to make my first tutorial EVER! GAHHHH!!!!!! So what you will need is: A sewing machine Scissors Pen Measuring Tape Pins One 13x43 piece of fabric 4 pieces of ribbon 9inch length any size ribbon you would like Directions: First I took a yard of fabric I liked and measured 13x43 and cut I then folded it in half length wise(right sides together) and Ironed it flat. Then I sewed a straight stitch length wise and then pulled it right side out and ironed it flat.
I then folded the long piece in half and marked two measurements 8 1/2 from the bottom for two double rolls to fit into!
You just stitch across
In this step you want to fold the raw edges inward and cut four strips of ribbon 9 inches long
tuck the two pieces of ribbon an inch into the little fabric sandwich and do the same with the other side then pin it and sew across the top using 1/2 seam allowance and then sew downward to seal that top piece so you cant see the ribbon from the side( sorry if this is hard to understand but I have been sewing less then a month email or comment if you need more help)
VOILA YOUR DONE!!

You did a great job! I must have found the same non-tutorial post you did..I wasn't happy. I think I'll make one and use velcro instead of a bow, I'm out numbered by boys and I doubt they'd like the bows. Thanks so much for this!

I was so happy to find your tutorial, I wanted to make this so bad. I found the same original link you did and I wasn't about to spend the money to buy something I could make myself.

I'm pretty sure I found the same link as you and others here. LOL. Doesn't that just make you mad to click a link and find no tutorial? Grrrr. Anyhow, thank you so much for taking the time to make a tutorial for this! Great job you did too!
