Camping Shower Totes and Toiletry Lanyards

7 Jul

Shower tote and toiletry lanyard with text

My latest sewing project and Sewing Pattern, was making shower totes and shower lanyards for my daughter and her family for when they go camping.  For the totes, she wanted it large enough to hold a bath towel, flip flops and a change of clothes.  For the lanyard, she found this idea from thepopupprincess.

We both loved the idea, but wanted to be able to add more items like a razor, tooth paste and tooth brush, so I designed these clip on mesh bags.  Here’s how they look hanging from the campsite shower.

Katie, the three grandkids and I went fabric shopping and here’s how everyone’s tote bag and lanyard turned out…the kids picked out their own fabric (in their favorite color) and couldn’t wait for me to make them.

Cadens Ninja Turtle Tote and Lanyard

Here’s Caden’s Ninja Turtle Shower Tote bag and lanyard. We found the clip on bottles at Joanns for $1.00 which had hand gel in them that she replaced with her own shampoo, bath gel and cream rinse.  I have to say I liked Caden’s the best…love the vibrant green!

Kylans Super Heros Tote and Lanyard

Lastly, here’s Dave’s Shower Tote bag and lanyard.

Totes Hanging in camper

Here they all are neatly hanging in their pop up camper, ready to go!  The lanyards are kept in the inside zipper pocket.

Family Off To The Showers

Here’s the Mitchell family at Cedar Point KOA campsite heading for the showers with their new tote bags and shower lanyards.   Katie said they worked out great, having everyone’s shower stuff in one place.

I have to say I really enjoyed sewing these!  They were really easy and each one turned out so nice.  Katie (and the kids) did a great job picking out the fabrics.

Thank you and Happy Sewing!

    Wondering if you do the tote and lanyard to order? I have zero sewing talent, but a pop up camper and a family of four. Love what you’ve done!

      Suzanne, thank you for your nice comment, but I’m sorry to say my schedule is really full right now and I can’t commit to sewing you my totes and lanyards.

    Hi and thanks, Barbara! I bought mine at Joanns. Any fabric store should carry it.
