Background: We wanted to get away from using our dryer everytime we did laundry. We have a wooden laundry rack that expands but needed a bit more drying space. Up went the clothes line and out came the clothes pins!

The bag was created a bit out of necessity. My girlfriend will not wear an apron to hold the pins when she puts out laundry and I hated forgetting the pins inside while hanging laundry. The design is based off of the chalk bags that climbers use. The top has a piece of plastic in it to keep it open. It hooks to your pants/belt loops via a carabiner.

The bag works and both of us actually use it. Less time with the dryer running is good all around!

Thanks for the comments y'all! Actually, I do live in the south- Mississippi to be exact! It is cooling off here which means less humidity!

Nice idea, I had one you left outside on the line, one day my son was hanging  laundry reached in for a pin and a spider climbed up his arm, I didn't know my boy could hit a note that high. Ever since that day he takes the pin bag inside.
 I live in Nevada and during the summer I can put a pair of jeans out and they will dry in 30 minutes! I don't use my dryer for purely economic reasons though, because I truly hate how hard jeans and towels come out when line dryed.

I had to laugh. I saw the pic first and I immeadiately thought of the chalk bags rock climbers used and it was your inspiration. I would love to line dry but I live in Texas and the idea of line drying is just ugh.

Those chalk bags that are used for climbing are so great! It truly was the inspiration.

I agree that towels come off of the line a bit hard and crunchy. Towels out of the dryer seems like such a treat!
