Wondering what to do with all the gorgeous laminates that keep coming out? Stumped for something besides a diaper bag or tablecloth? Wishing there was something both fun and practical to make that doesn’t require as much patience as a raincoat? I’ve got something for you. You probably guessed that already, smart readers that you are.
This incredibly easy garment bag is just the thing. I’ve left off topstitching and edgestitching but you could certainly add those if you chose. (Just remember that the more times the fabric gets punctured by needles, or pins, it loses some of the water resistance. Because liquids can seep through those little holes quite easily.) You could also add trim such as crocheted lace or rick rack around the horizontal seam lines. Or even add trim along the sides of the zipper.
You can carry this garment bag folded as well because there’s an elastic loop at the bottom to put over the hanger. Handy, isn’t it?I hope you’ll be inspired to make some of these. I think they’d make a great gift for the holidays. Or a great way to take clothes with you as you head out for Thanksgiving travels. Click here for the free pattern. Or visit the Freebies section.
