A Pretty Place To Put Your Dirties
IKEA sell cheap clothes hampers ($3.95), and I have bought quite a few of over the years. I use them for all sorts of things - handbags and scarves in the bottom of my wardrobe, 'green' shopping bags in the laundry etc.
The one we use for the dirty clothes had seen better days... the plastic had all ripped due to laundry being forced into it again and again.
Last night I made a fabric bag for the frame instead.

It was a simple task, however I ended up breaking 4 sewing machine needles in the process trying to reinforce the corners. So Plan B: I used a large tapestry needle to thread and tie some ribbon to strengthen to potential weak spots.
