Spring is in the air and a clothespin bag

Spring is in the air, finally. The weather was beautiful today, I was happy to hang my laundry outside for the first time. That means Spring to me and what else do you need more than a new fresh sewed clothespin bag :-)

It was fun to dig in my closet for just the right fabrics. So many inspirational fabrics for so many projects..

Ohh, what a dust on my baby. I have neglected her too much lately... when I was busy with this (<-click.)

I sewed and ironed,
sewed the inside and the outer bag.

Turned it inside out.

When it was all sewn together I placed the coat hanger inside.

I bought some new pegs :-)
and Ta daahh.. I'm ready for spring!

Very cute and something you need for hanging clothes outside. A couple of years ago I made one to wear like an apron for my clothespins, I love it! Enjoy the fresh air!
