My Pampered Clothespins

Although there's no shortage of clothespin bags around here, my favorite one was looking sort of dingy and sad. Well, very dingy and sad. I liked the shape of it and how it hooked over the line, though, so I decided to redo it. This is a vintage Waverly fabric I've had forever. I didn't want to use it on just anything, you know, but it seemed perfectly suited to this. As I was cutting out the pieces, I was thinking what a shame it was that the cool selvedge was going to disappear into a seam. Aha! Make that part of the design! Selvedge as binding!
