A pattern by Josee Carrier of the Charming Needle to sew a raindrop-shape bag to hang outside on sunny days when you use your clothesline. A simple loop is at the top to insert a carabiner for easy hanging. This pattern is rated beginner by the publisher, however, you will notice that the outside edge of this bag is finished with binding. Attaching binding to any project is not easy for most beginner sewers. A confident beginner who is fairly comfortable with the sewing machine, has had some experience sewing curves, and some experience with making and sewing binding. If you want to try binding around curves as a beginner, go for it! Practice makes perfect right? This clothespin bag measures 11″ × 16 ½” once finished. You can sew this bag with cotton, laminated cotton, canvas, vinyl, or oilcloth.
