Did your gran have one of these? Mine did and I remember loving it so much.
We have a backyard here with a laundry line and after bending down a thousand times to reach the pins out of a ziplock bag in the bottom of the basket (ow Cry) or having my daughter "help" by handing them to me (aka lose them in the grass Roll Eyes) I remembered this handy little thing and thought I should make one for myself.



There are some patterns online but I didn't love any of them so I just figured it out for myself. The apron is a pocket.

That's adorable!  My clothespin bags were never that cute.  I love how the buttons match so well too.  Great job!

Inspiration without application is moot.

That is so adorable! I have severe allergies so no outdoor drying for me. Its OK though, I am a little to lazy for one of those anyway. At first I thought you were supposed to wear it but now that I see how cute and little it is I think I want one LOL

Ah, thanks guys. I am rather enamoured of it myself.
If you google vintage clothes pin bag pattern you'll find a lot of hits. There was one alpine themed one at nicknaks and rick rack blog (or something like that) that was Very cute. I would have chosen to do that one if this style didn't remind me so much of my Gran.

You know, you can still use it inside if you've got a clothes line Wink. I have one in the basement that works during the winter when it's not so damp down there.

I didn't know these holders even existed! When I visited my grandma she always insisted on drying my clothes outside. Unfortunately that meant my undies too...I definitely remember trying to hide them from the neighbors Shocked
That is a very cute and useful holder you have made!
