As a child I grew up with laundry dried on the line. Oh, how I love that smell! This has been on my wish list since we moved in almost eight years ago. Can you tell how happy I am!?
What is a clothesline without a clothespin bag? Certainly no fun! My solution was to make my own bag. I have seen some really cute ones online. My goal was for it to be functional, cute and most of all free! I achieved this by using one of Megan's old dresses. The dress I used is a 24 month and is too short for Megan. Not only was it too short, but had developed a hole in the bodice. No longer a candidate for resale or handing down.
I first turned the dress inside out and sewed the bottom of the dress closed.
I then took the back where the buttons were folded them to the wrong side of the dress and sewed them closed. This is what will make your opening large enough to get your pins in and out.
Oh, and don't forget to remove the buttons for your button jar!
I then turned the dress right side out and sewed the sleeves shut.
I then inserted a hanger just like I would if I was hanging up the dress. I stitched under the hanger to secure it.
Here it is finished.
The thing I like most about this is that years from now I will be reminded of how small Megan once was.
Have a great weekend!
