I used to do quite a bit of sewing for myself, but I rarely, if ever, had the courage to actually wear anything I made. In fact, I have several dresses and skirts hanging in my closet that have yet to see the light of day. But I'm sure to get a ton of use out of this – my new clothespin apron:
I know, it's kind of dorky and old fashioned, but it's so useful when hanging things out to dry. And it was super easy to make. There's a great tutorial here, which I sort of followed. I had to piece a few things together since I was working with some fabric remnants, but it turned out great.
It took us two years to properly install a clothesline in our backyard. Um, yeah. It's a long story filled with several embarrassing incidents in which the whole thing came crashing down on my head. I'm sure I've been keeping the neighbors entertained. I finally went out and got a simple umbrella style clothesline. It holds a ton and there's little chance of anything falling on my head. I love it! Everything feels and smells so fresh after hanging in the sun and breeze.
