Day 15

Washbag_1Kitty is now off on her travels and before she went I was tasked with making her a new washbag.

Rather like the lunchbag dilemma, we have found that if you aren’t into pink, flowers or brands then there isn’t a great deal of choice for something to take your toothbrush on holiday in. I’m not sure that Kitty is really into yellow – but the fabric was irresistable – it is handprinted organic cotton from the wonderful Sarah Waterhouse. It is covered with a wide range of English insults which is bound to make her smile every time she uses it.

The washbag is closed by a lovely thick cotton rope and is lined with calico.  I’m not a big fan of lining things with plastic because it makes them almost impossible to keep clean so eventually they get thrown away.  This bag can be given a gentle wash when it gets covered in toothpaste and come up as good as new.
