I’m working with Method on a few posts introducing their new Clean Happy Campaign. Their new April video, Clean Like a Mother, is below the tutorial and features Noah on the guitar. We met him at the Method Summit, and he is all kinds of awesome.
Today I’m sharing a fun DIY project to create your own drawstring dry cleaning bag made from a recycled sheet! I actually found this sheet at a thrift store and have been waiting for the perfect project to make with it.
We throw all of our clothes that need to be dry cleaned into this bag which sits next to our hamper, and then haul it out every week or so to the local dry cleaners. Or. Also. Come this fall, it could easily double as the biggest, raddest Halloween trick or treat bag ever. All the other kids on the block will be jealous!
I made this one extra big to hold lots of loot- I mean- dry cleaning, and a pretty ribbon to tie it up.

Find an old top sheet you aren’t using or pick one up at your local thrift store. Wash it well of course. We’ll be using that top wide seam as our drawstring. Fold the sheet in half and cut two pieces about 45×30 inches. Remember, that wide seam should be at the top of each piece.
