I am one of those people who is a bag person. I’ve got bags to bring groceries home in, bags for the beach, bags to tote dog supplies in, handbags for daily use, and more. Surprisingly, I haven’t transferred my love of bags into sewing bags.
|My new laundry hamper.|
In part, because, I really don’t need any more bags. My bag collection isn’t out of control, but I already have a bag to cover most of my current toting needs. That is, until I bought a new hamper recently.
I love the woven look, and it’s the perfect size for laundry. The hamper has two handles for carrying, and I like the beachy look—maybe because summer has arrived?
But I’m thinking this new hamper needs a laundry bag inside, so I dug into my stash recently and found some large pieces of off-white cotton that will work perfectly to make one. I just need to measure, cut, and stitch.
I love that sewing enables me to see a need for a laundry bag, and that the best solution is to use fabric I already have to whip up one that will fit perfectly. It’s much easier than trying to chase down a store-bought laundry bag that might not be the right match.
If you’re looking for bag patterns and projects, or something entirely different to spark your sewing, subscriptions to Stitch and other titles are on sale in the Sew Daily Shop.
What about you? Do you love sewing bags? Are the type of person to sew up an item when you see a need, versus heading to the store? I can’t wait to hear.
