This sturdy clothespin bag is made from toddler oveall bib shorts.

When my cheaply made, store-bought clothespin bag fell apart, I decided I could make a better and prettier one.

I went to a Goodwill store and bought a pair of toddler’s overall bib shorts for a dollar. First, I sewed across the leg openings to close the bottom of the “bag.” Then, I put them on a child-sized hanger and sewed across the straps just below the hanger so they can’t slide off. That’s it — simple, sturdy and cute.
