Towel like shoe bag...

Hiya,

Im not sure if this exists but I would've thought it does. Basically I am looking for a towel like material shoe bag (drawstring type).

I have some indoor shoes for sports and sometimes the courts are a little dusty, so would like something to wipe the dust off my shoes.

Yes I know I can actually bring a separate towel for shoes but I was hoping if there is such thing I wouldn't mind spending a few £ to save myself having to remember:

"hand towel is for your FEET not your FACE"..................


Any help would be GREAT! thanks..!

I've tried having a stab with ebay but I cant find the correct term for what Im looking for.. closest I got to it was
"cotton shoe bag" but I dont think thats the same thing. :-(

buy a towelling pillowcase and thread some string through the opening seam and voila, my mother always made our p.e. bags like this

Thats a great idea! Could you direct me in the right way into finding one of these? Google and ebay says no to 'towelling pillowcase'. Is there another name for it?

I've got a beach towel that has a cotton drawstring bag sewn to it. The … I've got a beach towel that has a cotton drawstring bag sewn to it. The idea is that once you've finished with the towel you turn the bag inside out and the towel pops inside! Got it from the Aussie Gold Coast. :thumbsup:



yeah, me and the other half attempted to make one out of hand towels but it seems that material is too thick for the sewing machine :-( hand sewing isnt really an option lol.

they do exist as mother in law has one but not sure on wording or where she bought it from

Why don't you get a normal cotton drawstring bag (like for childs PE kit eg.Ebay item 180444270209) and then get a plain flannel and just tack sew the flannel by one corner INSIDE the bag? Then you would have a tiny towel inside a bag & you could just wash the whole thing when it needs it.
