So, before I get too festive on you I wanted to share some glorious pink flamingo fabric that I was sent by designer Venture de Saboulin, who launched My Little Venture in 2013. Venture’s Pink Flamingo design is printed on beautiful quality cotton poplin and would be perfect for any number of sewing projects. I’ve decided to join the current craze for embroidery hoops but I’m going to use it in a slightly different way to normal to make a laundry hamper. This is very easy to make and it’s very useful because it can be hung anywhere and it takes up no floor space. Also, if you can’t sew you can just use a pillow case for this project. Bonus.
You will need:
12 inch/30cm Embroidery hoop
Two pieces of fabric each measuring 52cm x 83cm
11mm Grommet and tool – I bought mine from John Lewis
Hook for the finished laundry hamper to hang on
Thanks again to Venture for the beauteous fabric. Do pop by the My Little Venture site – Venture’s other designs are just as charming as the pink flamingos.
