Here is a collection of free clothes pin bag patterns and tutorials I’ve found from around the net plus I tucked in a vintage embroidery goody at the bottom (a dancing wooden peg on a bar of soap, too cute!). Most of the tutorials are for sewing but there are a few crochet projects too. Enjoy!
With Grommets: Open top with two grommets along the back to sit on a hanging bar.
Easy Oil Cloth: Details are sparse but that’s all you need to get this made, front slit pocket is finished with zig-zag stitch and seam binding.
Hanging: This is a laundry sack but works well for holding pegs too (adjust length as needed). Circa 1944.
Repurposed Curtain: Also shows how to bend and snip a wire hanger to slip inside.
For Wooden Hanger: Round open front and fits over a wooden hanger.
Scoop Front: Open scoop front finished with double fold bias binding.
Apron Bonnet: This vintage sweetie is an apron that converts to a bonnet or a pouch to hold pegs.
Recycled Denim: Made with a pair of old jeans and ric-rac (optional).
Fabric & Felt: Features a cute felt applique! lol!
Hoop: A embroidery hoop is attached at the opening (for easy access), hangs by a strip that snaps over line.
Floral: Front pocket is trimmed with rick rack and grosgrain ribbon.
Sack: (crocheted) This is worked in one piece, has a round bottom and simple drawstring closure at top.
You can click the image below to print out this sweet vintage character, transfer it to fabric if you like and embroider. It’s an animated clothespin bouncing on a bar of soap from an old design I have (the complete project is too large to scan and share unfortunately).
- The design may be appliqued in any gay print or outlined in green or red. Limbs and features are black outline, eyes blue satin stitch and mouth red. Soap and lettering on it are blue; broken lines black.
