    lol yeah, it certainly is. I know my Mom used clothespin bags all the time. Back then you hung out your clothes and even before she died, she would only dry a few things, the rest went on the clothesline.

    I hang out my clothes too!!! Great for bathroom rugs and anything you don't want to shrink. In the summer my bed linens dry faster on the line than they do in the dryer and it doesn't add extra heat to the house.
    Hubby hates towels dryed outside so I make an exception for him :-)
    I need to make a bag, but I am leaning towards an apron to hold the pins.

    I have one of these hanging by the washer and dryer that I still use. It was made by my great grandmother in the 30's or 40's before I was born. It works great.

    These are adorable but I cheated. I went to Goodwill and bought a little girls dress. I cute one that had buttons down the front. I sewed the bottom shut and the front closed so the pins will stay in and viola! my pin bag was closed and finished. I put in a wooden hanger in case it was left in the rain I didn't have to worry about rust or breaking a plastic hanger in the wind. Cheap and quick. That's my kind of pin bag.

    What a neat idea. Talk about recycling. You did it!!

    Mama did that, too. In the winter time the clothes would freeze in the breeze. When she got to where she couldn't get out much, she would use her hanging quilting frame if she didn't have a quilt in it. She never had an electric dryer.
