It’s a clothespin bag. It’s hard to see in the picture but it can be tied at the waist and there you go—clothespins right at your fingertips. I wrote a post August 9, 2006, with a similar question. In that post, I modeled the clothespin bag my Mom made for me.
Our church is having a Christmas celebration where there is a silent auction on “baskets.” My basket this year will be a laundry basket, retractable clothesline and this clothespin bag containing 100 clothespins.
Taking my pattern off the one my Mom made for me, I used the legs off of Dan’s old jeans. I removed the pockets and stitched them back on because, unlike in Mom’s day, we all need a pocket for the cell phone. Had I had a choice, red plaid flannel would have looked great, but all I had here at home was a flannel sheet that doesn’t have a mate.
Who hangs out clothes anymore (except me)? We’ll see. I’ll let you know if it is a hit or miss at the silent auction.
