New Sewing Patterns For The College Student

College Dorm Laundry Bag Digital Sewing Pattern

My niece’s daughter, Hannah, just graduated high school and is going to college this fall. Boy, does time fly!

Wanting to sew her something, I came up with this Laundry Bag with a front pocket for holding laundry detergent and fabric softener sheets. Her college colors are red, white and black, so this red and white polka dot and black fabric was perfect!

To make it strong and easy to carry, I added grommets for the drawstring closure and 1 1/2″ wide webbing handle with a Dring for easy hanging. The finished bag measures 29″ X 12 3/4″ and holds A LOT…I stuffed it with a king size comforter for the photos, LOL!

I’m sure she’ll get lots of use from this!

Closet Hanger Safe

You gotta be careful these days, so I thought I’d make Hannah this Closet Hanger Safe for her to keep her money, jewelry and other important items out of sight. It’s a quick and easy sew and uses scrap fabric or fat quarters.

This Clothes Hanger Safe has two zippered pockets, measures 16″ X 9″ open and has a Velcro closure to keep it secure on the hanger.

There’s also an optional ribbon/cording that’s attached to the back so it can fit all size hangers.

I made myself one, of course, but don’t tell my husband… don’t want him snooping around my closet, hahaha!

Happy Sewing!
