Wash Bag Sewing Tutorial

Here's my Contrast Fabric Wash Bag Sewing Tutorial. I lined the wash bag with a waterproof lining and used a oilcloth fabric for the base so that it was super practical!

You will need...

    snow days, winter wonderland collection fabric in blue
    stone spot oilcloth
    pu coated nylon waterproof fabric
    1 nylon closed end zip (20cm long)
    stitched ribbon (10cm length)

How-to step by step...

Wash Bag Sewing Tutorial

Step 1

Start by cutting out the following pieces as above, including one panel of lining 22cm wide by 22cm long.

Step 2

Stitch the fabric panels together using a 1cm seam allowance, ensuring that if you are using a one way print (ie only looks good in one direction) make sure that the are placed in different directions as the snow print fabric in the above illustration.

Step 3

Place the waterproof lining panel, right sides together with the outer stitched panels and using a 1cm seam allowance stitch them together along the short sides.

Step 4

Turn the panels so the right sides face outwards. Top stitch the lining to the outer panels along the seams.

Step 5

Pin the zip to the top edge, so that the teeth are just showing. Stitch in place.

Step 6

Repeat with other side of zip, so zip is enclosed at the top panels.

Step 7

Turn the washbag the wrong way out, and stitch down the side seams, using a 1cm seam allowance. Pinking shear or overlock the raw edges.

Step 8

Cut a square of fabric from each side of the base as above illustration. 2.5cm x 2.5cm. Then rearrange the corner so that the bottom and the side seam are aligned, using the raw edges as a guide. Using a 1cm seam allowance stitch a straight line across the base.
