Pattern Details

This fabric laundry hamper is constructed from waterproof canvas which is easy to sew, doesn't ravel, durable, and of course, waterproof. It comes in solid and pattern styles. I've used it to make totes, duffel bags and lunch bags. It can be purchased from here: outdoor-canvas-fabric?variant=9913481667. You can also use heavy duck/canvas fabric. The removeable Drawstring Bag is made from cotton that I prewashed. The Laundry Hamper measures 20” X 15” X 15” and the Drawstring Bag measures 23” X 15” X 15” This Laundry Hamper is perfect for the kids room, laundry room, camper, dorm and nursery. It could also be used to hold toys, stuffed animals, guest room bedding and blankets...etc. My daughter uses hers to hold her three kids sports clothes that need routinely washed. Both the Hamper and Drawstring bag is easy to sew and come together quite quickly. The pattern includes step by step instructions with lots of supporting photos.
