“I was asked to make one of these for a Christmas gift this year. Oh my, this was so simple to make, my mom loved it! So cute and super easy to make!”

Make this useful and beautiful bag for keeping your clothespins at hand as you hang your boutique and other special garments to dry! The clothespin carrier hangs right on your clothesline with a standard child's tubular hanger. Pattern includes two sizes, the smaller original which holds up to 50 clothespins, and new larger size for up to 100 clothespins. It is easy to move it right along with you as you hang your precious air-dry garments and as you take them down and put the pins away. These make great gifts and are quick to make!

This was just the pattern I was looking for. Very easy to make but I found the opening a little too large, and I made the longer version. Of course, maybe I have too many clothespins .....

I have just made this bag, is easy to make. I made it a little bigger to fit a regular size hanger. Instructions are clear.

What a great little bag! We use ours for more than just clothes pins, Each of my kids have one to keep their homeschool supplies in, and we use them to hold socks, underwear, and treasures too! Very easy to make, takes less than a half hour to sew one up!
