not for clothes pins anymore

This type of apron has been used for years when ladies would hang up their laundry in the outdoors, I wish I would have had one when I was young and did not have a dryer and had to hang wash outside. I found the directions and a diagram on how to make this apron but no pattern so with the directions and a few pictures to go by I made my own pattern. I choose some fun fabrics and added a few new details for modern convenience, like a small pocket to carry a cell phone and a large loop for hanging up the apron or for using as a towel holder. I love this apron and I plan on added a tutorial on her to teach you how to make your own bias tape and on how to make this apron.


  1. This is the perfect clothespin apron!! My favorite is the black and pink one. You mentioned a tutorial, but I can't find it. Is there anyway you would be willing to share your notes on how to make this?

  2. I did add a tutorial on how to put on bias tape easily...I will think about adding a tutorial on making this apron but with a pttern I am not use it would be very helpful, I got my pattern from a newspaper article and hads to make it up myself,,which took alot of trail and error to get just right.
