Sew A Clothespin Holder: Pattern Review

9 Jun

World's Best Clothespin Holder

 

If you are trying to be more green (or save money) by air drying your clothes then you definitely need to make one of these!  I finally made one last summer in a bright floral fabric that just screams me!  🙂  I also recently made the above star print one for my mom for her birthday. 

I did use a pattern and would recommend picking it up the next time patterns are on sale for .99.  (Happens every 6 weeks or so.)  I used McCalls 6051 and it was a cinch to make!  Perfect to make on a lazy afternoon or during nap time.  One thing I love about the holder is that it is so wide it is makes hanging clothes out fast!  It is also perfect for Eli to reach in and hand me a clothes pin. 

The pattern also contains instructions for making just about everything you would need in a laundry room: Apron, Ironing Board Cover, Laundry Bag, Hanger Cover, Organizers, Banners, and Bins.  Hopefully I’ll be able to make some more things as time permits me too!  Many of these items would work very well in other rooms of the home.  I also think the clothes pin holder would be a nice addition to one’s closet.  It could easily hold: pantyhose, slips, belts, scarves, children’s socks, etc.
