I made several of these clothespin bags last summer, sold some and gave some as gifts. I found the pattern in a very old magazine from the thrift store. Sorry I don't have a pdf pattern,don't know how to do that yet.
Hope you like my creation.
here's the pattern & measurements for the clothespin bag
Body: cut (2) 15"long top to hem
13" wide at waist
4 1/2" long at sleeve
14 1/2" wide halfway between waistband & hem
19" wide sleeve to sleeve
15" bottom of body
make bottom round on each end
I've had lots of request for the pattern for the Little Dress Clothespin bags I make.
back facing cut (1) 9 1/2" x 13 1/2"
L-shaped piece (center front facing) 7 1/2"x 6" x 3" x 2" x 3" x 5 1/2"...cut 1 reverse and cut another one (5 1/2" sides to meet at center fold on body)
waistband: 14" x 2" cut (1)
I did the best I could altho this cam is not focusing right.
cut ruffle skirt 11 1/4" x 8" on fold(short end is fold)
Gather 11 1/4" edge to fit across waist
I hope you can read it or make it larger.
I included all the measurement you need on each pattern piece.
I came back to add all the measurements for cutting out the pattern.Sorry no one could read the pattern..I hope this helps!
Good luck and I'm here if you need to know anything, just leave a message for me.
Thanks for your patience.
This is the body, you need 2 of these
This is the skirt folded in half, cut 1 on the fold
The other piece is top facing, cut 1 reverse and cut 1 more you need 2 of these
This is the back facing, cut 1
the other is the waistband, cut 1
lay back facing on top of one body and sew across the top
flip this facing to other side and press
The 2 l-shaped pieces go on the other body piece as pictured, butting each close to the center.I usually press the body piece at the fold to get a straight line.
Sew ONLY across the top and down the center on each piece
Now cut down the middle between the facings down to the end and make 2 small clips at that end so it will lay smooth when you turn it.
Clip the corners and turn to right side and press.
Next open out the skirt piece and sew small hem at one long end and both short sides
Gather top of skirt and pin to body front straight across right at bottom of split.Sew all the way across.
Waistband...press up about 1/2" on each long edge
Pin waistband across over the gathered edge and sew down both sides.
Pin the bottom of skirt up out of the way and lay back body piece over front body piece and pin all the way around, being careful not to pin skirt.
Sew all the way around starting at shoulder where the two tops meet, about 3 1/2" from end of the sleeve.
Turn bag right side out, fold down the facings, attach a button to each side and you're done!
