My previous clothespin bag was a black purse that I received for a x-mas gift back in 8th grade when I began my goth spurt from my aunt. We've come a long way, yes Aunt S-? It dry rotted last year & wasn't really conducive to this line's placement for some reason. I received this vintage pillow case to practice my machine stitching when I was learning how to sew so I picked out all of the many black practice seams, closed up the open side, cut out some pockets & bias tape & added a waist band. I love it! It holds a lot of clothespins.
By the by, Victor is my photographer; 5 is like a magical age! They can do everything over night. He greatly prefers silly & ghastly faces, so that may be a lot of what you see here for awhile.
This is my yard apron, denim & linen, very sturdy. It is some 70's pattern. I will never make a gathered denim skirt again. I love the pockets though.
It keeps the white hair off of you & any flying muck. A must on rainy days.
This is my cooking apron, I don't use it too often. It's the scalloped reversible from The Paisley Pincushion. It's a bread day & this is my baking side, lighter for flour.
And the sauce side. I made like 7 of these in a row, mine & Charlottes were the first & I put on all of our pockets wrong, but it does the job!
The back view. You can see the crossover straps better on Charlotte's & also where I sewed her pockets on the back instead. Hers is the same denim/ linen combo as my yard apron.
I'm wearing a denim shirt today, it doesn't show up too well but this is my canning apron. This was actually a denim jumper of the potato sack kind. It worked good for maternity; in the later months I would put the jumper on first & then a pretty top, so as to look like a skirt. Mike hated it unless I was actually showing/ pregnant. When we moved here I had 3 people say to me in 1 town day, "Oh, you must homeschool." I cut a strip out of the middle & added a strip of my diminishing linen stash for a waist band. It doesn't match, but it is serviceable.
I like this one best; maybe since it was originally a dress the straps don't slip down. But, there is my stash, show yours if you've got them.
