Makes a Great Gift, Too!
Not so long ago every homemaker needed something to store clothespins in. Hanging bags designed specifically for that purpose were found in many homes. These days, not so much. You’ll have to look long and hard to find a clothespin bag being used for its intended purpose.
That doesn’t mean you won’t find a reason for making a charming clothespin bag. This adorable one by Debbie Ivey is so cute you won’t mind at all thinking up ways to use it.
You could store clover clips in it, those pesky plastic grocery bags, fabric scraps … well, you get the point. Once you have this charmer made up you’re sure to find a way to display and use it. It’s so much fun that you may even want to make another to give as a gift.
This is an easy project for anyone with solid sewing skills, and it will stitch together fairly quickly. Dig into your scraps and have fun with your color choices!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
