Since I still had an over abundance of left over fabrics I wanted to figure out a laundry basket that I could make instead of buy. I found a tutorial on Make it and Love it of a wooden framed laundry bag.
The tutorial is really detailed so I don’t have a whole lot to add to it. If you’re interested in making your own go check that out.
Since the laundry bag is reversible I chose two different fabrics to use. One is a heaver weight home decor fabric left over from the pouf and the other is a lightweight cotton.
The only difference I made from the original pattern was making the straps so that they have a different fabric on each side.
For the frame Chris cut some 1×2’s for me following the sizes in the pattern. Then I just used some of the Minwax express stain in onyx to give it some color.
After the stain dried Chris assembled the frame.
Then all that was left to do was hang the bag on the frame.
Here’s the chevron side out. . .
and the green side out.
I’m happy with how it turned out. Right now I’ve got it tucked in a corner and since it’s foldable it’s really easy to move around. I think the only change I would make if I did it over would be to make the straps a little shorter and make the shorter sides of the bag a little wider. I’m not sure what it is but it doesn’t seem to fit the frame quite right.
There’s another nursery project done and up on the blog! I’ve still got a few more projects to share before I’m ready for the final reveal but I’m getting close.
