Laundry Day

Every spring someone comes into the mall and ask if anyone has any old clothespin bags. I remember the ones my mother and grandmothers always had hanging on the clothes line. I looked online for a picture and patterns. Didn't see exactly what I had remembered, so I came up with an idea of my own. Here it is, I used vintage cotton toweling, vintage ric rac and vintage bias tape. I had some old clothespins, the open and close kind, we always had the ones that were already open. This still is not as I remember but close. Anyway, it was fun to do, and I am surprised how much time it took to sew.
