DIY No Sew Pillowcase Hamper

Ever since we’ve brought Hunter home, I’ve been trying to organize the house a little more.  Honestly, I’ve been trying to do that before we brought him home, but puppy prep got in the way.  One of the areas that I wish I had gotten to is our bathroom.  I had so many plans for our bathroom.  Its original pink and blue 50’s tile and all wrong color painted walls have bothered me for years.  I really wanted to repaint this Summer, but never got around to it.

The only recent organizing I got to do in the bathroom was straightening up the linen closet.  I went to the store and purchased baskets to store toiletries, towels, and more.  The last update I needed to do was something to hold our towels.  After searching for some ideas, I decided to make a no sew hamper out of a pillowcase and an embroidery hoop.  So easy, but I love the way it turned out!

  • 12″-14″ embroidery hoop
  • Pillowcase (I used King size)


  1. Open the embroidery hoop.
  2. Slip your pillowcase through the inner hoop.
  3. Even out the pillowcase around the hoop.
  4. Place the other hoop on top of the inner hoop.
  5. Secure the outer hoop tightly.
  6. Tie a piece of heavy duty string or ribbon around the screw top of the outer hoop and hang!

We go through a lot of toilet paper in our house (or rather, I do, because I’m also blowing my nose with it half the time).  While my no sew hamper came in handy to hold our towels, it also made great and easy storage to hold our toilet paper rolls.

I was happy to stock our new storage hamper with Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong Bath Tissue while recently shopping at Walmart.  Our sewer system is kind of crappy (pun intended?), so it’s nice to have a soft, but strong toilet tissue in the bathroom that’s safe for our pipes.  

I have our new hamper hanging off the back of our bathroom door.  It’s a small space solution for storage and keeping dirty laundry contained.  Even when the hamper itself gets dirty, it’s easy to take it apart and throw it in the wash with the rest of the laundry.

What’s your favorite way to organize the bathroom?
