Clothespin Apron

My DH recently put up my clothesline. I was getting tired of carrying my clothespins out in a ziploc bag. I didn't want to leave them out there on the line. Soooo, I made this clothespin apron. I found the pattern and instructions at Mother Earth News.

You just got to love Mother Earth News!
The apron is a grea idea. I never thought of that. It makes sense. I just have a bag that hangs on the line. Your idea is way better!

I am going to look for this pattern, as I hate to leave a bag of pins outside, here in Florida it usually ends up with some huge bug in it! This is a wonderful idea. I love you blog!!!

Barbara: I do love it. Always great info in the mag and online. I just thought if it was on me it would be a lot more convenient.

Juri: It was super easy to make. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment.

Wonderful idea. I use to make mine by sewing a tshirt or dress bottom together and sewing the top on a hanger. I have also made one from the seat part of Levi's. You have to carry them in and out but just hang them in the laundry room.

That's functional...but cute!

Henny Penny: Thanks!

Gail: Yeah, I've seen those and made a few. But I liked the fact that I can pop them off and on the line and basically stick them in my pocket.

Lisa. Thanks! I love it! I'm thinking I need to make more and open an Etsy shop. Some day. LOL
