A few years back I made myself a clothespin bag. I didn't actually use it for clothespins, mind you. I used it for canning jar lids. A friend of mine recently ordered two of these from me because by golly, she actually hangs her clothes out to dry! Sometimes I hang my clothes out to dry, and they come in magically folded and smelling of fresh air and daisies. Then I wake up and remember that the same load of clothes has been in my dryer for the last two days and that there is no way I would ever have the mental wherewithal to studiously hang and unhang a million little socks, jeans and shirts. This is the first of the two clothespin bags. The smocked lace trim is some vintage stuff I picked up at a yard sale last summer, when I hit the mother lode of sewing supplies. I have never seen anything like it before.
