Easy DIY Garment Bag
f you would like to know how to make a garment bag. I found this terrific pattern for an Easy DIY Garment Bag on Craftsy. The pattern and the tutorial were created by Melissa Peda and she has graciously allowed me to share it with all of you. It is perfect for short trips or to cover precious clothes in your closet. I urge you to visit Melissa at her blog www.100billionstars.com for great tips on working with laminated cotton and to try out another of her many other bag and quilt patterns. There are dozens of laminated fabric choices at Fabric.com and Amazon not so much in the stores so you will likely have to order some for your project. This post contains affiliate links that if you click on them and make a purchase I may receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.
Because the bag is made from laminated cotton it is gentle on clothes but is also water-resistant. You can make this garment bag however long you like but the size in the tutorial was perfect for the suit I needed for an overnight trip for work. Just remember if you extend the length you must get a longer zipper such as a zipper on a roll
Plus, it only took a few hours to whip up and I absolutely love it.
There are hundreds of laminated cottonfabrics available on-line (not so much in the stores) so you have your choice just by clicking the affiliate link. The ladybugs and solid red suited me perfectly.
Here is Melissa’s terrific pattern and tutorial:
I hope you enjoyed this terrific Garment bag pattern and hope that you give it a try.
