She'll find it hilarious of all things that I chose a DIY for something that involves cleaning. Whether or not the laundry gets done, this bag is awesome; ditch those plastic laundry baskets!
This is also a great gift idea. And no, a laundry bag as a gift isn't telling someone they need to clean. It's telling them you took the time to craft something to fit their personality; especially if you have a friend making a move, or you just know they need one. It's always nice to get something thoughtful and personalized.
P.S. A bag like this could even be used for the beach!
