Clothespin Bag

Well it's been awhile since I posted anything. I wish I could say that I have been busy doing lots of fun things, but sadly I have nothing to show for my time away from posting!  

Last weekend I made this clothespin bag.  It's from an old pattern I've had for several years.  It's called Wash Day Clothespin Bag by Darlene Zimmerman.  I made one of these for a coworker a long time ago, cause she used the clothesline a lot to dry her clothes.  

I decided I would make one for myself, I hope to be using a clothesline soon, at least by spring!  It took longer than I thought it would to make because I could not get my pleats correct.  I walked away from it several times.  I finally figured out I was marking on the back and I needed to mark them on front!  Ugh!  It all worked out in the end.

Then I found these wonderful old hangers on eBay.  One was blue with little pink flowers, nicely worn and aged looking. I think it looks perfect with my little dress.
