Wash bag for hospital care package


I wanted to take a care package to my mother-in-law and thought it would be nice to put items in a wash bag that she could use for storing her dirty clothing while in the hospital.  

I embroidered a little clothesline on a piece of muslin

Then I used clothespin and laundry fabric following the “burrito roll” pillowcase pattern so that all the seams are enclosed.   If you haven’t seen the burrito roll pillowcase you can see a video of how to make it on YouTube:

I used the trim piece for a casing and ran a piece of ribbon thru it with a cord stop at the end so that it can be cinched closed.

Fill it with items to make a hospital stay more comfortable.  I like that isn’t a bulky item she will have to carry home from the hospital like a basket and she’ll have her clothes corralled for washing once she gets home.
