YAHOO! After we bought our house in Montana, but hadn't yet moved here I was already *pinning ideas for a clothespin holder, because I was so stoked to have a clothesline again! That  was allllllmost 4 years ago and I just finally finished it... a CLOTHES PIN APRON!



I had this "flour" sack in my stash... I got it at the by-the-pound thrift store probably over a decade ago. I just loved it, but never had the right project for it until now. And luckily, I had this green gingham print on hand and enough to make 10' or so of double-fold bias tape.



There was this little pocket sewn onto it and I went ahead and cut the back of the apron using that part. I suppose my phone might go in there and then the little things you find while hanging laundry and don't have a place for, like buttons that have fallen off, broken clothes pins, stuff that's been left in pockets, etc.



And right after I took these photos I loaded it up and hung a load of whites on the line! It worked great and I am glad I decided to go with the apron over hanging bag for my needs.

*As I  mentioned I got the idea from pinterest, but the link on the pin was dead. Luckily the image has measurements enough for me to have made a pattern. But here is a link to the pin with the measurements on it. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/168885054749634378/

Thank you! I'm crushing on it a little bit. I already like hanging laundry on the line and this makes it even nicer in a couple of ways!

That is so much better than the bag that hangs on the line! This way, instead of walking back and forth to the bag, the clothespins are right with you! Brilliant!

Thanks y'all!

Thanks! All the bags I saw were built around a clothes hanger, so they could move along the line, but with the breeze and such here I think it would swing right off the line now and again, so YEY APRON!

This is super cute!
I'd steal the idea, but I just leave the pins on the line when I take down the laundry.
It rains a lot here, so my lines are under a roof, the pins don't get rain or sun damage.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Your apron is so great! Nice touch with the checked trim, it works perfectly. Bunny Bits... Cheesy

That's a nice set up! Even if ours was covered, I wouldn't trust the squirrels not tomake off with mine pins. Last fall the stole nearly 150 bulbs off our string lights!
