This pattern may be ultra-cute, but I love how clever it is by using mesh as part of the laundry bag. I always have the unpleasant experience of putting dirty laundry into non-breathable containers only to find them musty and rank by laundry day. Adding mesh will keep the clothes air-fresh and dry no matter how long you go without doing a load!
