I recently sewed this laundry bag. I would have blogged about it sooner, only I didn't take pictures till today.
I made it from a pattern (and templates) in Sew Hip magazine no. 39. The original version in the mag has embroidered words on it too, that say "posh pants" below the appliques, only I wasn't convinced my embroidery skills were up to that task, so I went for a simplified version. If you want to see the original, there is a picture in this blog post by the designer.
For my version, I re-purposed an ancient pillow case for the white sections, and used some Cath Kidston polka dot fabric I had in stash for the appliques. And I'm really happy with how my newly-serviced machine now manages applique!
This is going to be a birthday present. I'm thinking of making another for myself, in which case I may try the embroidery part. Will let you know!
