    There was a thread awhile ago about clothespin bags. I mentioned one I had seen at a local store. I got down there this last week and thought it was so cute I brought one home. I don't have a clothesline or anywhere to put one but I thought I would use it for storage!! Wouldn't that be a cute way to store supplies?

    Very cute. I always had one when I had to hang clothes out to dry. I never thought of using one now for storage. What a great idea.

    I have clothes pin bags and use one in my closet to keep nylon stockings (otherwise known as pantyhose) in rather than in a drawer. I have an old one in the laundry room that is a catch all for small items that need to be hand washed. In the sewing room they would be great for storing bias for binding quilts and other small pieces. Cute hanging on the wall. As a decorative piece, among the Sewing Angels some of us have.

    Clothes lines are a thing of the past for me, since Condo living does not allow for outdoor drying. But clothes pin bags are a connection to the past. Part of my "history."

    Everyone should have at least one.

    I made one years ago and still have it I made it out of ticking and it has held up for over 30 years. I keep it in the basement to hang stuff on the line downstairs.

    I did a Google search, using a variety of word combinations and found "little dress clothespin bag pattern" and "vintage clothespin bags" and vintage aprons. Lots of things available depending on what you would like to make. Google is the place to go...
