Vintage laundry hamper cart thingy......

Did I tell you that I like toile? I also like laundry or at least somedays I like laundry. I don't like it when it gets piled up. I love love love handwashing! I think I will like it all while using this!
This is one of my Friday yardsale treasures only $2

I knew it had potential. I used the old liner as a pattern.

The old liner only had one pocket but I decided that I wanted two. I don't know why but they are there now. One for clothespins and the other for a bottle of water and a snack? LOL!!! Everything I do is centered around food!!!

I love the toile. I had purchased this fabric with no project in mind. The brown denim was a remnant for $1 intended to make me a pair of run-around-the-house-and-paint-furniture-in-shorts but I was too busy painting furniture to get them made. The buttons were from my stash I have had for years and years. I have something like $6 in the finished project including my vintage clothespins!!!
Hope you are having a great Labor Day! Does sewing count as labor? If so I am not taking the holiday off. Too many ideas in this head that need to become into fruition. Wish me luck! I have gave Danny the entire day off. I have asked for nothing as of yet, but the day is young ;-) Wish him luck on that one too!!

What a lovely transformation ... the colors of fabric are wonderful.

I love doing laundry & hanging it out do dry, but hand washing, nope!

I love it! I don't mind the laundry except for folding and putting away! I don't even mind ironing!
I'm supposed to be getting a clothesline soon! Yippee!
