Quick Laundry Bags

Posted on June 12th, by Amy in finished project. 9 comments

Hi friends – My older two girls, 8 & 12, have been doing their own laundry, they decided doing their own, was better than helping to sort for all for kids. So to keep things organized they needed their own laundry bags. I found a few full yard pieces in my stash and let them choose which they wanted. Then I took an hour to make these fun drawstring laundry bags!


On the left is It’s a Hoot by Momo, for Moda, mostly out of print at this point, for Emmalie. On the right is Delighted, by The Quilted Fish, for Riley Blake, for Ella.
I had fun with a fast finish, and the girls immediately picked up all their laundry to half fill their bags. That’s a win – win situation!
Any fast finishes at your place today?

    Gosh, I hope my boys grow up as keen to do their own laundry! I will definitely make them their own laundry bags if they do, it’s a small price to pay :)

    Awesome! I wonder if that would work with my three teen age sons?

    Cute bags! If you gotta do laundry, you might as well do it in style!

    Finishes! I do have one–a baby quilt. But I started three other quilts too. It’s one of those over-inspired times! :)

    I love the laundry bags. That will help the girls take ownership!
    When each of my three sons was ready to start middle school, I took him in the laundry room and taught him how to do his laundry – sorting, taking care of stains, using the dryer, etc. It was “Now that you are old enough, you will start taking care of your own laundry.” They considered it a “rite of passage” and accepted it without any complaints. There were no more “Mom, I don’t have any clean underwear” comments as we were getting ready for school (I taught) and if they had forgotten to wash something, it was no longer MY fault.

    Those bags are darling – I’m so impressed that your girls do their own laundry! I have a hard job getting my 16 and 19 year old girls to do that :)

    That does sound like a result on all fronts.
