Voila..... Laundry bags!

I think I had mentioned the other day that I was working on two (2) laundry bags. I don't know what it is about general sewing, but I do not find it relaxing. Perhaps it's due to the fact that I know very little about home decorating etc.. sewing. I find it so different from quilting. Anyway, my husband had built the armoire for the bathroom to my specifications and now it was time for me to make the bags. The armoire has been done for about four (4) years and I have just gotten to it. A "his and hers" laundry hamper.

You might be wondering why the doors of the upper armoire are not painted yet. Well, they're temporary. Stephen had asked his best friend Vin to carve a design for the panels. We like for our furniture to have something special about it if we can and Vin is quite the talented entomologist. Vin, like myself, procrastinates. LOL As Stephen likes to joke, he's made a kid in less time then he's taking to carve the panels. lol Yes, they had a child three years ago. As a matter of fact Carolyn became pregnant around the same time Stephen asked for the carving. You can just imagine the jokes that fly when they get together. But they are best friends, so it's all in good fun.

So, until Vin decides to finish the panels, I will continue to look at my armoire as almost done. Well, at least I no longer have Stephen nagging me as to when am I going to get those bags done. lol

I'm hoping that these bags will keep my daughter's clothes off the bathroom floor as well as her bedroom floor. That kid, clothes every where! lol

Off to get some real sewing done! ;o)

Have a great day everyone!

I think of "general sewing" as something that lacks the creative element, maybe that's why it's less than compelling. It looks great, BTW!

I truly do not care for general sewing and especially garment sewing - YUCK, ICK, UGH, etc. LOL Now, your hampers are great and aren't you glad to have them DONE?

It always takes weeks if I have to mend trousers etc. Great job and worth the effort if it keeps the clothes off the floor.

Your armoire is beautiful. What a great idea. I think as far as your daughter goes, you can live in hope.

What a neat idea for clothes hamper. General sewing is not my thing...I make curtains here and there but don't enjoy it.

I have to agree with you about general sewing -- I'll spend hours pressing, matching seams, and generally fussing over quilts, but things like hems, buttons, utitlity work? Yawn!
