I decided we needed one of these. My mom had made one back in the day. I took some extra fabric and came up with a pattern this morning. This was my first positive experience with grommets too! Comments- good or bad are appreciated.

For the past week or so, I have been thinking of making a clothes pin bag.  I like yours. Cheesy Was it hard to do?

It was easy, it took about 15 minutes to make. I just took a wood hanger with a swivel hook, layed 3 layers of the fabric together,  freehanded the pattern to accomodate the hanger. Most of the commercial bought ones have a really small hole- I'm scared to shove my hand into those. So I freehanded a big opening. Cut that out, clipped the curves, ironed it down (I'm too lazy to pin) then stitched around it. Then I placed the one with the opening and the back pieces right sides together and the back lining to the back piece wrong sides together. Stitched it all, then added a grommet (succcessfully!) to the top for the hanger part to pop through. I think that took me longer to write than to make.

I always hated reaching into the clothespin bag for fear of a spider touching me so when I made my bag I used a heavy hand towel and a metal coat hanger bent to the shape I wanted and I stitched it on, it ain't pretty but it does the trick and it's around 25 years old.

I finally made one! Cheesy



I'm debating whether or not to square the bottom, but for now, it's usable even though I haven't taken care of the strings yet.  It's made from an old turtleneck sweater and roughly based on the clothespin bag pattern at Sewing @ About.com.
