This caddy uses washable brown paper. It is basically the same stuff that is used to make the label on jeans – it is washable, quite stiff and can be stitched. I love it – it is about the same colour as Kraft paper and being so stiff perfect for making this little caddy. I wanted to use the gold foil again, but it wouldn’t really show up very well on the brown so pressed in another layer of white cut out to a circle shape first. The print has come out really well, but my sewing machine didn’t really like stitching on the paper and it was also extremely hard to turn inside out so not sure that I would use it for this again.
