This clothespin bag will be a Christmas gift for my Mom. She is really hard to shop for, because she has everything she needs. However, she loves the things I make her and I can usually come up with something that she couldn't buy herself. I got this idea in July when we were at my parents' vacation house. My Mom has a pulley clothesline to hang laundry and beach towels. I noticed that my Mom was storing her clothespins in a plastic grocery bag. Somehow I remembered that idea all this time!
This bag was made from so-called "stash" items. The fabric was purchased for about 50 cents at my Quilt Guild auction. I love the colonial houses and they look very much like the ones near my Mom's house! The wooden hanger was one of several in a grab bag from Michael's for $2. I had in mind the shape I wanted from some clothespin aprons I had seen. I drafted the pattern myself and the whole thing only took about 30 minutes to make. I'm really excited to give this to her, because I think she'll really like it! Would you like the pattern as a free download? Comment to let me know and maybe I'll post it!
