Sew and Tell: Lingerie Bag

Lingerie bags are good for keep your delicate undergarments safe in the washing machine, and prolonging their life. Lingerie bags are usually made of holey mesh fabric, but I had some stiff curtain lace leftover, which does the same job and looks even prettier!

The zipper was salvaged from an old pillow, and the fabric I used for the edge bindings and zipper were from an old pillow case. I think it looks rather pretty, even full of unmentionables. Now those bra hooks won't get tangled in other clothes and I can just toss them into the machine in the bag like this!
