Sweet clothespin holder dress

I am joining everyone at It’s A Very Cherry World with Sue for Rednesday! Oops, Sue doesn't have it up yet! :):) I still want to show you this really cute item.....

I came home today and found this sweet little handmade clothespin bag in the mail….it is even cuter that I thought it would be! I have seen this pattern and thought how fun it would be...and someone made it for me! :)

IMG_2065 I bought it from a seller on Etsy named “VintageEncore”. She had a few of these for sale….but this one was calling me! It has a canvas bag ( to hold the clothespins) attached to the front “dress”, and some of the fabrics are indeed vintage…..

IMG_2068 See those sweet little cherry buttons…how perfect! And there is feed sack cloth on the sleeves and the band in the middle. And the red/white is a tablecloth….

And this fun little red trimmed “skirt” is a fabric with aprons. I just love it! I am putting beadboard and a white long shelf in my laundry room, it has no windows and needs to be brighter, I am going to paint the room yellow and white and hang this little cutie from a ped on the shelf!

Thanks for stopping by…..:)

This is indeed perfect for you. I love the apron print fabric...sooo cheery! Your laundry room will take the drudgery out of washing dirty clothes! Hope you escaped those bad storms yesterday! The pictures on the news were scary!

I remember seeing these sorts of holders back in the day. Just the fact that I said "back in the day" shows that I am soooooo old. Yikes.

So darn cute!! I love it! About 6 months ago, when I was house shopping, I viewed a lovely older home that had a vintage clothespin bag hanging in the laundry room. I decided at that moment that I not only needed to have one for myself I wanted that house!! My family talked me out of the house(older home that needed lots of work and was still over our budget) but I did end up finding a clothespin bag at an auction!! Mine is certainly not as cute as yours though. I've gotta keep looking!
Thanks for sharing.
Fondly,
Ann

Sandy, that is so stinkin' cute! It looks like it stepped right out of your blog. It couldn't be more perfect for you.

I love it! I have a collection of vintage clothes pin bags, so I have a fondness for them!

Hi Sandy! I followed your link from Flickr and I'm so glad I did. Love your blog and all your fun stuff here.

I remember a neighbor of ours using a clothes pin bag like this way back when I was a little girl. It's so cute and really goes well with your blog.
