Did It Myself No. 4: No Sew Laundry Sack

Read this post as well as new content on the completely redesigned Of Houses and Trees!

Here's an easy, cheap and fun project (well, fun if you're a DIY nerdwad like me). All you need is a pillowcase (I used a king-sized one), a burlap sack (got mine from UFA for about $2), some sisal twine (a must have item for any DIYer) and a few safety pins (bonus if they're old and rusty like the ones I found in my stash... yes, I have a safety pin stash—don't you?)

Here's how to assemble: 

1) Slip pillowcase into burlap sack. Roll top of pillowcase down over burlap sack. (As you can see in the photo, I also rolled up the bottom as it was quite lengthy and alsoit looks cute.)
2) Pin pillowcase into burlap sack. 
3) Pin sisal twine to the top two corners of the sack.
4) Hang sack where your heart desires.

As one can imagine—this doesn't have to be used as a laundry sack. You can use it to hold wrapping paper, or toys, or recycling or porn... Personally I put my nice shirts and yoga pants in it as I don't like them to fraternize in the wash with the common laundry. 

Speaking of laundry... I may have overflowed the kitchen sink last night and been forced to sacrifice a bunch of bath towels to the clean-up. I better go take care of them or tonight we'll be drying our post-shower asses with nothing but air.
