Aloha!

Praise be, I got some time to sew yesterday...looky what I did! Somewhere sometime I got the idea from someone's blog to use a old t-shirt as a clothespin bag. Our old t-shirts aren't fit for anything when we get done with them, but I've been mulling the idea in the back of my mind anyway.

Yesterday when I passed a children's resale store I thought, hey, might be something cute in there. And there was, this little boys Hawaiian shirt was too scrumptious to pass up.

I just turned it wrong side out, stitched the bottom shut, figured out where I needed to sew the sleeves so the hanger still fit and eureka, the cutest clothespin bag. I had to borrow my mother-in-laws clothes line, I haven't got mine put up at the farm yet. Those peg pins were my grandmothers, I've been using them for 38 years and she got them with ration coupons during World War II. Cool beans!

Your clothes pin bag is cuter than cute! Thanks for sharing it. I'll have to take pictures of mine and show them to you. I have one in VA that I've had for a long time, and another at the cabin that was at my Mom's house when we cleaned it out. I've never seen one like yours, and it makes me smile. :)

How cute!!! You are on a creative roll, girlfriend. I took a little shorty overall for a toddler, sewed the bottom shut, and that is my clothespin bag. Yours is brighter and makes me smile!
