I was inspired by Amy Youngs instructable about making a felt version of a flow through worm inn. But I don't have all the tools to do the wood work that the frame requires, and I'm cheap. So while out shopping and looking for a cheaper alternative than buying a cord stop from Joannes, I figured I'd take the cord stop off of a cheap dollar store laundry bag. Then I noticed that the bag was non woven and probably not organic and wondered if I could just alter the bag itself to make the worm bag. This I made my own Flow Thru worm bag out of a dollar store laundry bag!
Step 1: Materials List
I don't have exact measurements, as a lot of this is found material, but you get the idea. If you find a laundry bag in your store the dimensions might differ, but the concept would be the same.
-A non organic fiber laundry bag. Not cotton or linen, but polyester or something else synthetic. Honestly I don't know what this laundry bag is made of but it melts when it's near heat so it's probably plastic, not plant based.
-Polyester sewing thread
-Seam ripper or fingernail clippers work well, too
-Sewing machine with a zipper foot attachment
-a Long Zipper, long enough to go around 3 sides. I bought a spool of zipper with12 pre-threaded pulls. You just slide a pull to the middle and cut it to the size you need.
-3/4" PVC Pipe
-3/4" PVC 90 degree corner connectors x 8
-a fine saw or pipe cutter
-small plastic wash tub
