Two Christmases ago, I received this cute idea book as a gift. It was something I'd never looked at but it sounded fun and full of promise, so I had it on my Christmas wish list! Shamefully, it took me 1.5 years to really use it! Just today I MADE something from it! And it was so cool to have the patterns included, ready to cut out and put to use. So, introducing, my One Yard Wonder!
|I think they call this Granny's Clothespin Apron. It's the greatest idea! A cute little apron which has a large pocket across the front that is made to hold your clothespins while you hang things on the line. Brilliant!|
|The patterns were easy to cut out and use. The instructions were mostly clear, and it went together easily. Such a fun project! It probably took me 3 hours, but I'll be faster with the next one I make.|
|The clothespins settle right into the large front pocket or can clip to the pocket edge.|
|Isn't the fabric cute?|
|Since my fabric had a pattern to it, I situated the front of the apron right over this sweet little girl that is outside enjoying being a kid.|
|The ties are sturdy and are about 30 inches long.|
|And here I am modeling it. I made this one for my Etsy shop, Perfect Darlings, but definitely plan to make one for ME! No more flying clothespin bag! Yippee!! And as I take things off the line, it will be so easy to put the pins in my pocket, rather than keep the bag on the line within my reach.|
This apron would also work for kitchen and house work. Pockets for your iPhone, iPod, kleenex, lip balm, or whatever. Maybe I need two!
Thank you for stopping by!
