Most hotels offer hairdryers in their guest rooms. But many times when staying with family or friends, a hairdryer might not be available when you need it. So when Mr. Aitch and I traveled across the country this past summer, we bought a small hairdryer to take with us for those times when we didn’t stay in a hotel.
The hairdryer was attached to the wall in some hotels but some were in a cloth bag on or under the sink area. That gave me an idea for our “travel” hairdryer.
I made a simple drawstring bag to protect it in our suitcase and make it easy to find.
Two fat-quarters and a length of cotton cord later and I called it done.
Cotton for the outside and a piece of heavy flannel for the inside. French seams keep it neat (no exposed seams). A piece of batting sandwiched between the outer and inner fabrics and/or quilting would offer more padding but I didn’t think of it at the time.
This will stay in our guest bathroom when we’re home but can go with us at a moments notice.
