A PDF Sewing Pattern to make a Laundry Basket.
Carry your laundry from the hamper to the washing machine with this sewing solution. The Pocket holds laundry tabs, quarters, the laundry room key or how about a snack? This large bag is useful without the laundry customizations too.
The stiff top edge makes it easy to stay open while loading and unloading the Basket. The hook will attach to the lip of your dryer to make it easy to drop items inside. The Bottom stiffener gives the bag a nice flat surface for your folded items.
There is a reference video with Time Stamps in the description for each step. You can find the video on YouTube or linked here in the product description.The sewing steps in the PDF are meant for reference and to be used with the video but they are sufficient for a sewist familiar with sewing construction. Find the links to the Videos HERE.
Skill Level: Adventurous- most steps are straight seams. Attaching the Basket to the Bottom is the trickiest but I'll help you through it!
For most of the Laundry Basket you've seen as samples, fabrics such as canvas, Spoonflower's denim, Essex Linen, and other similar medium to heavy fabrics were used. A lighter weight material can be used for the lining. Most machines should be able to sew all the steps. An alternative to the top stitching along the top edge is provided (you can under stitch it or skip it).
