I've had this on my "to-do" list for years, I think. I've been keeping my clothespins in a cute little drawstring bag, which is a pain in the butt for actually hanging out clothes or taking them in. Since I don't expect to be growing a 3rd or 4th arm anytime soon, I whipped this up. I based this on some pictures of vintage aprons I've seen online.


I think it really only needed to be half as wide as I made it.
I felt like it needed a little something extra, and I thought the horseshoes kind of went well with the gingham. They're from Sublime Stitching's "Country Cool" transfer set.


Thanks for looking! Cheesy

awesome idea! we are going to start hanging some our clothes to dry now that we have a house, and this is PERFECT for hanging them ... I had a little experience with hanging some clothes when I hung the onesies we decorated at my SIL's baby shower and it was a pain to keep going back to the bin she keeps 'em in.

You did a great job!  Thank-you.  Thank-you so very, very much.  I usually keep my clothes pins on the line and the neighbor stole about half of them.  And now it is so annoying to keep walking to the other end of the line to get the few clothespins left.  This is an awesome solution: it looks fab, it's convenient, and I can take it inside with me. Perfect!!   Cheesy

That's a great idea!  I love it.  I've always kept mine in a bag that hangs on the line.  I like this idea though.

Good job!  I need to make one of those!  You've just given me yet another reason to drool through my fabric stash.  LOL

ETA:  Did you just use the fabric as is, or did you use interfacing on the gingham, too?

Thanks everyone! Smiley I must have jinxed the weather by making this, it's rained ever since so I haven't gotten to use it yet. lol

Stealing clothespins?! That's not very neighborly.

I had at least 5 different fabrics pulled out before I decided what to make this out of. lol  And I just used the fabrics as is. The gingham is pretty flimsy, so in hindsight, a light interfacing probably wouldn't have been a bad idea.
