When it comes to doing laundry, I’m always looking for ways to make my life easier. One way that I’ve done that is by encouraging my kids to put their dirty clothes in a hamper or laundry bag (as opposed to the floor!) Today, I’m going to show you how to make this easy DIY Monster Laundry Bag. And by the way, if you don’t sew, don’t run away. This laundry bag can be put together without even one stitch- my type of project! Another way I try to make my life easier is by using products that work well, such as Wisk Deep Clean® Fresh Breeze. For over 60 years, Wisk has been a premium laundry detergent brand that’s known for effectively fighting the toughest stains, including that famous Ring Around the Collar®. That’s definitely the kind of detergent I want in my laundry room!

Did you know that in an average load, the ratio of hidden body oils & sweat to visible stains is 20 to 1? Isn’t that shocking? With Wisk Deep Clean® Fresh Breeze, you don’t have to worry about those hidden body oils & sweat. In fact, the formulation of Wisk Deep Clean® contains a revolutionary blend of Micro-Cleaners® that effectively combat one of the worst laundry offenders: hidden body oils & sweat that are trapped within the fiber of your clothes! When it comes to getting your clothing cleaner than ever, “Don’t Just Wash It, Wisk It!”
Are you ready to see how to make one of those Monster Laundry Bags for yourself?
purple pillow case
glittery silver foam sheet
silver fabric tape
iron-on hem tape
hot glue & glue gun
1. The first step is to close the opening of the pillow case using the iron-on hem tape. Simply lay a strip of the tape along the opening of the pillow case and then iron to seal.
2. Now, let’s cut a rectangle of about 8″x4″ for the monster’s mouth. Make sure you place it about 1/3 of the way down the pillow case and make sure you only cut through one sheet of the pillow case.
3. Let’s now cut out the various features of the monster’s face. Using a pencil, freehand draw some large eyes and teeth on the piece of white felt. Cut them out. Also, cut out some smaller circles from the purple felt and a tongue shape from the glittery silver foam sheet.
4. Now, let’s add those eyes to the monster. Using the hem tape and an iron, attach the white circles to the pillow case first and then top with the smaller purple circles.
5. No monster is complete without some teeth. Using the hem tape and an iron, attach the teeth to the inner top part of the mouth and attach the tongue to the lower part of the mouth.
6. Let’s finish off the mouth a bit and make it look a bit more professional. Simply use the silver fabric tape to line the raw edge perimeter of the mouth. This is really looking a lot better now.
7. The last thing our little monster needs is some purple hair! If you’ve never made a yarn pom-pom before, here’s a quick picture tutorial!
Now, make a large pom-pom from the purple yarn and use some hot glue to attach it to the top of the pillow case.
Our No-Sew Monster Laundry Bag is complete! You can simply pop dirty clothes into the pocket formed by the hungry monster’s mouth! 🙂
To hang it up, I simply used a pants hanger to hold up the ends of the top of the pillowcase. I hung it on the doorknob and it’s a perfect solution for keeping my kids’ clothes in order. When it’s time for me to do the laundry, I love that I can grab the whole laundry bag and bring it down to the utility room.
Speaking of laundry, did you know that Wisk detergent is turning 60?! It was actually the first liquid laundry detergent on the market! Yes, it’s a detergent with a long-standing history of effectiveness and it still delivers the same powerful clean today that it did 60 years ago when it came on the market.
My husband and I exercise daily and our kids are also very active every day, so it’s important that we use a detergent that’s powerful against body oils & sweat. That’s why I love Wisk Deep Clean® Fresh Breeze– it offers an added boost of freshness that’s safe for both standard and HE washing machines! In fact, Wisk Deep Clean® Fresh Breeze goes beyond surface stains to remove the hidden body oils & sweat that other detergents can leave behind.*
*Compared to the leading variant of the top three liquid value brand.
Be sure to follow the directions for use on the packaging exactly. With Wisk Deep Clean® Fresh Breeze, our clothing & towels achieve a really premium level of clean! Also, the scent is lovely and the value is fabulous!
I often pick up my laundry detergent when I’m at my local Stop & Shop buying groceries. It’s so convenient and there’s such a great selection. Look for Wisk Deep Clean® Fresh Breeze in the detergent aisle of your local Stop & Shop. You can also shop for Wisk Deep Clean® Free & Pure online here.

This is o cute, I am just so terrible at sewing though, my monster would probably not look as cute…LOL 🙁
That has to be the cutest monster I’ve ever seen! I bet the kids love stuffing him with all that dirty laundry. I love that it’s no sew because I must have been skipping class when we learned to sew in Home Ec. 🙂
I love this Monster laundry bag! It would definitely encourage my kids to put their dirty clothes in it instead of all over their bedroom floor!
That is adorable! I am terrible at sewing so this would be PERFECT!! My son would love it!
That is such a cute way to get kids to put their clothes in the laundry bag! I bet it’s a lot more fun to feed the monster than just toss the clothes in the laundry basket.
I absolutely love this! It’s awesome that it’s no sew as I struggle with even the simplest stitch. This would totally encourage my kids to put their laundry in it.
Love it! Wish I had done these for my kids when they were smaller. Such a great idea and might actually make the kids want to put clothes in them instead of the floor (which is where my kids put them). #client
The laundry bag is super cute. We definitely like Wisk. It’s one of the brands that doesn’t cause any of us to have an allergic reaction.
Hehe that is such a cute idea. My kids would love having laundry bags like this for their rooms. Great idea!
Oh now this is just adorable. I would love to have one of these upstairs in the hallway or bathroom for the kids clothes, maybe it would help encourage them not to just throw their stuff around. What a fabulous and adorable idea!
This is super cute, I would love to make this for sure. I am thinking that even if I never use it, I would totally keep it forever so that I can say I made something cool 😉
These guys are an adorable way to keep laundry off the floor! My nieces and nephew would love them.
What a creative, fun, and cute project that is practical at the same time! I think I’ll have my kids make their own, it’ll help them WANT to put their dirty laundry away, thanks!
This is a very cute DIY project! I would love to try this with my kids. They’ll be excited.
