Another One Hour Project



Here's another project from the "One Yard Wonders" book (by Yaker and Hoskins). It's called "Granny's Clothespin Apron." In my version, I used two different fabrics, but they do add up to about a yard. This fabric came from Joanne's and it was in the baby section. Brown with either pink or powder blue seems to be a color combo for bambinos these days--very stylishly cute!

This project went together very fast. Now all I have to do is wait for a sunny day to use it. I keep my clothespins in a bag Debbie J (see my sidebar) made for me, but the clothesline doesn't move so I keep having to go back for handfuls of pins. Now I can keep them in Debbie's bag but carry them in my apron.

I'm going to try to link up to some creative carnivals this week. Today I'm linking to "The Girl Creative" for her "Just Something I Whipped Up Monday."

I'm also linking to "Motivate Me Monday" over at "Keeping it Simple."

A great idea! That way the pins are within hand reach the whole time you are hanging the clothes.

I have an old clothesline at my new house, but haven't tried it out yet. Maybe this weekend!

This is so cute! Much better idea than leaving them on the clothesline to get all cracked and gross...

Love that fabric! In fact, I think I have some in my stash just waiting to be used. :)
