DIY Gifts for Mom - Victorian Corset Shaped Laundry Bag

Victorian Corset Laundry Bag

The hourglass figure, also known as the Victorian scallop or the serpentine line was the proportion that defined beauty in the 19th century. Also known as the Golden Section, the shape defined generations of women and continues today. We have long discarded those constricting garments but our nostalgia for them lives on. For Mothers' Day why not gift Mom with a corset that hangs in her closet and collects the dirty laundry. Make it out of pretty fabrics and trim with rick rack or laces. It uses a common metal hanger and is a clever way to be green. Download instructions HERE.

  8. Never mind hiding it in a closet what a great catch all to leave hanging off the coat rack or by the door for keys, gloves, dog leash and scoop baggies. Adorable!
