Pattern Release: Lovely Laundry Bag

May 4, 2011

I have another pattern I designed ready to show you!  Here is the Lovely Laundry Bag.  If you had a laundry bag like this, wouldn't it make actually doing the laundry less of a chore?


$7.00 USD



These bags are sturdy and easy to put together.  I first decided I needed a laundry bag when traveling with my family and all the dirties were mixed right in the suitcase with everything else!  I needed a way to sort them out and carry them home.  And why not make it pretty too?

These laundry bags whip up easily using jelly roll strips - and if you like applique, you can add a little "Laundry" label to your bag.  Not up for applique?  The plain striped bag looks adorable too.

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner, some experience with fusible appliqué  

Make the bags in 3 sizes - 
   Mini 13”x 17”, Standard 22” x 28”, X-Large 29” x 35”

One jelly roll will make one M or XL bag and 3-4 XS bags



And here it is in my "laundry room" aka the hallway between the house and garage.  Not very good lighting here - but you can see it gets some good use when we travel up to visit grandparents!


This pattern consists of 14-pages of instructions plus step-by-step photos AND an applique template sheet.  The pattern comes as an instantly downloadable PDF file once your payment is complete.  The pattern can be purchased by clicking on the Buy Now button above. It will also be available in my Pattern Shop.


Fabric Requirements:


Fabric
Yardage Requirements
unbleached drill
1 2/3 yard (XL), 1 1/3 yard (M)
½ yard (XS)
1 jelly roll* (2.5” wide strips)
40 - 2.5” wide strips
Appliqué Thread
1 spool to coordinate appliqué

2 2/3 yards (XL), 2 yards (M), or 1 ½ yard (XS)
Fusible web

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the pattern...
(and because I know someone will ask....Drill is a material that is heavier and more durable than quilting weight cottons, but is lighter than denim or canvas.  It works perfectly for a laundry bag and is available at your large fabric/craft stores.)




Hope you like the Lovely Laundry Bag!

  1. So cute! I always take a white trash back for dirty laundry when we travel (sad!). This is much more fun!

  3. I really love the work you have done with the laundry bags. They are pretty reasonable as well and this would make for a good challenge. I like the laundry label on the bag, it adds to the design of the bag. This would be great for traveling. I would love to see some more items.
