Reader Jessica H. from mad in crafts made a space/alien-themed room for her child, and came up with this great idea for a custom laundry bag using a laundry bag she got at the dollar store! She modified the laundry bag by threading a wire hanger through the drawstring casing part of the bag, and then stitched on some alien-ish features and pipecleaner antennae. Fun idea!
