JÄLL frame is good for a "white/color" double laundry bag

Materials: JÄLL laundry bag, some MAJKEN and DITTE fabric, velcro and a sewing machine.

Description: As my really old JÄLL laundry bag ripped, I decided to use the frame to create an improved new one.

This one has two bags to separate white and color clothes. I chose a plain orange fabric and the pretty Majken print in an attempt to make an easy color code for my vague husband, and also to make a match for my orange bedroom.

The bags are tied to the frame by two velcro strips so they can be untied and taken to the washing machine all the way across the flat.

Now I’m thinking about making an extra bag for the baby clothes.

    Simply love this!!! Can you please share the pattern/measurements.

    I love this idea. I have been saving these frames after the flimsy plastic has torn. Do you have a pattern or the measurements you used? I have found that my attempting to make patterns usually end up wrong.

    Nice look, but I’m simply using a “DIMPA waste sorting bag” (the type without a stand), which is a three-piece set of white/gray/black bags that can be carried off individually to the wash room.

    Who cares if they’re intended for trash sorting? They’re perfect for sorting laundry into whites/colours/blacks and are of approx. same capacity as my washer. :-)

    Oh, and happy new year!

    Oh, I think she directly translated “vago” into vague, but actually meant lazy. (“Vago” also means vague, but not in this context)

    I love the translations sometimes. What’s a ‘vague’ husband?
