Make a Simple Clothes Pin Bag for your Clothes Line!


Summertime is time to hang out the laundry!  I love my clothesline but was always struggling with how to deal with the clothes pins.  Well I have solved that problem and want to pass this on to all you clothes line ladies!!



This is a VERY simple project to make!  If you don’t sew, do not despair because you can hand stitch this one!


Supplies:


1 child’s size button up the front shirt, about size 2T or 3T


1 coat hanger


Thread to match the fabric


Lay the shirt on the table and button up the front of the shirt. 


Turn the shirt inside out and sew the bottom of the shirt closed.


Turn the shirt right side out and unbutton the first few buttons at the top.


Now you have a little bag that you can fill with your clothes pins!


Insert your coat hanger as if you were hanging the shirt up and hang it on your clothes line! 


Not only is it cute but it is the most simple to make and useable project that I have made in awhile!!

  5. How cute! This reminds me of a clothespin bag my grandmother used to have that looked like a little dress.


    I just made a clothespin bag for a friend, using a dish towel, that I was pretty pleased with, but this is much cuter. I'll have to try one of these.


    God bless,
