Bathroom Towel CAR ORGANIZER

Take bath towels and turn them into a car organizer!!
I found a set of bath towels and a set of hand towels
at Target for $5 total! 
(Can't beat $5.00 for 2 car organizers)
You will need to measure the seats in your own car before getting started so you know were you need to put your pockets.  I have large seats, therefore I did not have to cut my towels.
Lay out your bath towel.  Fold up the bottom for a large pocket.
I then took the hand towel, folded it in half and layed that on the bath towel were I wanted the pocket to be.
I did this, instead of cutting the hand towel, to make it a double pocket for extra storage.
Pin everything in place.  I then took ribbon I had and pined that to the towels were I wanted to make the seperate compartments. Now sew down the sides and the bottom of the towels and then the ribbon and it is all done!
Now, depending on how your seat works, you will have to make a couple of holes in the top of your towel so the head rest can be put through the towel to hold it in place. 
Be aware... that if you have seatbelts on your seat like I do you will need to make a few extra adjustments :)

It really made it simple using towels.  I also love the idea they are very washable as well. 
These are perfect to help keep the upcoming summer busy -ness better organized and help keep my car clean!!

Great Idea to keep all those traveling toys in and also to keep the back of those seats cleaning from little people shoes! :)

Considering how expensive the
Trailblazer seat covers are, this idea is AMAZING! Great job!

Great idea! Thanks for sharing. This looks much easier than cutting and hemming fabric. I want to make one for our upcoming long road-trip/family vacation.
