1 empty plastic vinegar jug + 1 scissors + 2 rolls colored duct tape =
a clothespin holder!
I wanted to sew up something cute to hold our clothespins, but so many other home-sewing projects were vying for my time, and I was really sick of bending over to pick up clothespins. So, I commissioned Jake to make this. I got the idea from Ellen Sandbeck’s Organic Housekeeping. She says to use a milk jug, which I did when we lived in Kansas, but it was kind of flimsy, so this time we decided to use a vinegar bottle, which has been far superior. All you do is cut out a hole in the front (don’t make it too low!) and then snip the bottom of the handle so you can slip it on the clothesline. And have I mentioned how much I love colored duct tape? I haven’t found a lot of uses for it yet, but just you wait . . .
