Clothespin Bag Re-Do

We inherited this lovely lady with our old house, and while I absolutely adore her vintage charm, she was a bit dingy. (dingey?) Hmm. Dingy is a bit of an understatement. She was down right dirty and worn out!

So, as any sewist would do, I fashioned a new bag out of some super cute quilting cotton. With only two seams and a hem, I was done in no time at all. Now if only I had paid attention to how the frame came apart, I could have easily kept this project well under an hour. I think it took about 45 minutes including cutting and reassembly.  I swear I fumbled with that silly frame for 20 minutes though!

All fumbling aside, I now have a pretty little place to keep my clothes pins. I just love the smell of line dried laundry, and now I have one more excuse to hang my linens in the sun. As if I really needed an excuse, hanging laundry on the line is almost therapeutic. Don't you agree?

P.S. If you like what you see here, I'd love it if you'd share!

I no longer own a dryer so I dry every thing on a few clothes drying racks. I don't ever use clothes pins yet your cute little bag makes me want to get one anyways.
