sewing up a monster laundry hamper


I have to admit, after seeing this project on the Martha Stewart website I really wanted to make one ASAP.  But I did do some internet searches for "cute hampers" before giving myself permission to place my order for this kit at Spoonflower. You'll get one piece of fabric with all the components printed on it (see below). It's hard to see in this picture, but there's even lines to guide you when cutting each piece out with your seam allowance already built in. The directions are even printed on the fabric! Super easy and fast--it took me all of two hours to make this, even including the time to cut out each piece.

Ta da! Monster ready to eat some delicious dirty laundry (the opening is the mouth)!

The kit even includes a smaller screenprint of the monster, suitable for sewing up a "baby monster" stuffy. Now to see if it motivates my kids to pick up their dirty laundry ...


  1. I've just finished stitching one of these guys up! I bought the fabric about a year ago and just suddenly decided to make him, he will be used in the kitchen to hold all our shopping bags.

  2. Oh my gosh, that is so freaking cute! I'm so impressed, it looks amazing.
