Clothespin bag

This book, "The French~Inspired Home", is so beautiful. I bought it a couple of months back when it first was published and did not regret it. It is full of inspiring photos and ideas. There are a few patterns in the back of the book also.
One of those patterns is for this adorable clothespin bag. I am turning my bedroom slowly into something more vintage looking and decided to make this little bag. I pulled some fabric from my quilting stash and here are the results. I just love it! To see another wonderful result, look at my friend Lynda's beautiful blog: http://hedgerowhollow.blogspot.com/ . She is an amazing seamstress!

Heidi,
What a beautiful book and I just love the project you made from it.
We would call it a peg bag in England. It looks so pretty in the fabric you chose.
I did visit your friends blog and saw her lovely version of the bag.

Hugs,
Margaret

The book looks really interesting. My home is considered a French style so I do sometimes try to achieve what would be considered a French country look although there is so much decorating yet to be done.
I should make a clothespin bag, I have them in a little basket and I'm always spilling them. Thanks for giving me the idea. :)

Cute clothes bag, Heidi. That is a neat book, you're right.
Thanks for the heads up on that other blog too. It looks interesting and I added it to my favorite blog list so I could check it again.
Have a wonderful day!
Love,
Terri
