My mother has had the same bag to hold her clothes pins since she got married, I suppose. It still does the job, but it is getting thread-bare. I thought it was time she had something new--something she could easily launder and still do the great job her old standby has done for over 45 years.
So I worked up this little bag for her. The pretty cotton is supported by scrap cotton canvas I had on hand. The hanger can be removed to launder the bag. Someday I'll figure out how to create those sexy pdf files everyone else shares. I have it in a word document and would willingly share the steps and dimensions with anyone interested in a similar useful item that encourages a green approach to the wash. It was really simple--took maybe 20 minutes to complete.
Mmm. . . the smell of sun-dried laundry. That is summer as much as fresh strawberries or the feel of sunshine on skin.
