Clothespin Apron

Electric clothes dryers here (in Moldova) are almost unheard of.  They are very hard to find, and very expensive.  So we figured that we would live like Moldovans and hang our clothes to dry on a line just like everyone else.  It only took me a day or two of doing that to realize that a clothespin apron is a very handy thing to have.  So I made one:

The orange part and pink fringe are from an old tablecloth, and the patterned part is an old pillowcase (we have a big supply of scrap material here at camp).  I didn’t use a pattern, I just looked at pictures of clothespin aprons online and sketched mine out similarly.  I really love it and it makes doing laundry so much easier and more fun!

  1. LOL! It might make hanging laundry easier, but the fun will wear off soon, trust me! ;-) That's a very cute apron too, and an excellent usage of scrap material.
