Apartment Redress :: Laundry Days Part III
Today I set out to make the frame of the laundry hamper. It went pretty smoothly, except it turned out kind of huge! Haha. I think I’ll cut it down a little bit. I’m thinking about making the depth smaller, like 1 foot instead of a 1 1/2′. It just seems really big. I want a second opinion though.
Oh this is important, this little tool is so worth getting if you do a lot of diy stuff with pvc. It’s a pipe cutter, it makes nice smooth cuts all the way around your pipe. I was going to use a hack saw and Jason was like “here use this”. Why thank you Jason. I think I will. And I did. And it was great!
I ran out of pvc and didn’t realize until later that Jason has a whole bunch that he had been playing with leftover in the garage. AH! I could have seriously made this all with leftovers. Oh well. It’s partial leftovers now.
I found some duck cloth on sale at Joann’s for just $4 a yard (the 72″ size too!) and bought 3.5 yards. I think that will be more than enough for me to make some laundry bags and then a bag for my other laundry stuff (hangers, detergent, etc).
I’m getting closer and I’m hoping to have things a lot closer to being finished when I show it to you again on Thursday.
On a different topic – I’m listing things on ebay again! Hooray! Right now I have two lots of stash fabric and one knitting bag up. I really don’t care about making money on these, I just want them to go to a good home…. and stop cluttering up my home :P So I’ve packed a lot of things in flat rate boxes so it will get to you quick and for not too much. (shipping ranges from $6-$13 depending on the size and weight).
And another thing, I was thinking about was changing my ebay account so it would be “craftleftovers” and I said as much to Jason and he was like “you know you can just change your username right?” Genius! So I did. So now you can see all my listings here under the seller name: CraftLeftovers (no spaces). So go check it out.
I’m going to actually go put something else up on ebay right now.
See you all tomorrow!
