Laundry Bag



When heading off on holiday I’ve always included a plastic bag to contain laundry – but this year I thought it would be nice to have something a bit more attractive to bring my washing home! With travel in mind, this bag measures 20” x 13” (approx) and is unlined for considerations of weight (those airline luggage allowances can be very tight!). It also has a loop on the back so it can be easily hung on the back of a hotel room door and two strong tape ties to keep the contents safely inside no matter how long your journey.

This is a great fun project – the embroidery features washing symbols of course – and is simply stitched in black floss before being appliqued to the bag.  The bag has French seams (these are a lot easier than you may have thought) so there are no messy raw edges inside.

Please note this listing is for the pattern to make your own bag and not the finished item.  It is a pdf pattern and you will not receive anything in the post.  Your pattern will be available to download as soon as your order is complete.
