Spring breezes, combined with Spring cleaning, are perfect excuses for abandoning your dryer for a clothesline, don't you think? The windy weather provides quick drying, and clearing out closets while Spring cleaning has probably yielded an old dress and a few wire hangers. Don't toss or donate them quite yet. Save a hanger and a dress to make this cute clothespin bag. It's super easy to whip up on your sewing machine, or you could try a no-sew version of the bag using fabric glue.

- Place the dress (turned inside-out) on a flat surface. Cut a straight line approximately four to six inches below the bottom of the arm opening.
- Now, using your sewing machine (or fabric glue) sew up the arm holes and the line you just cut, while the dress is still inside out.
- Flip your dress top right side out. Insert the wire hanger into the dress. Now, using either your sewing machine or your fabric glue, sew/glue a line under the shoulders of the hanger. This will hold your hanger in place on your dress.
- Fill your new clothespin bag with clothespins, and hang it on the line.
