Is there anything that more comforting and homey than line dried sheet and clothes? It's finally that time of year again, and while we hung up our clothes line a few weeks ago our clothespin bag was a little worse for wear. I'd bought it at an estate sale a few years ago and loved the design so I remade it in new fabric.
It's a genus pattern, which starts out as a square. The middle of each side is taken in so once it's sewn onto the hook it has four nice openings which are large enough to get a hand in, but not so big that the pins will fall out... I'm sure there has to be some hardware out there similar to this old hook, as I doubt it was made for just this purpose. Ahhh, the ingenuity of necessity.
