As we’ve been getting my daughter ready to head off to her first year of college, I realized that some items are best purchased and some items are best made by mama. This easy diy laundry bag uses repurposed pillow cases and is much stronger than a purchased laundry bag.
I found these cute king size pillow cases on sale at Target, but you could easily use thrifted ones or one you already have. A king size pillow case is the perfect size for a laundry bag. You could use a standard size pillow case, but it would be a bit small for most college students’ use. I purchased coordinating cording from the fabric store, but you could use an old shoe lace or cording you already have.
Wash both pillow cases. Turn one inside out and place it inside the first. Be sure to line the side seams and the bottom corners up well. Using 2 pillow cases makes the laundry bag much stronger (remember how much laundry you used to stuff in your college laundry bag?) and makes it pretty both inside and out.
