MAKING USE OF A SEWING FLOP

Today is Whatcha Working on Wednesday at Leslie's Blog, My Country Home.

Saturday I tried to make a clothespin bag for my Etsy Shop using some pretty striped fabric. The lining fabric was a perfect match and I was pleased with how it was turning out. But, somehow in the process of trying to match the stripes and not keeping my mind completely on what I was doing, I got the opening too high up on the bag.

Oh well, I really like it, so now I have my own bag for recycling plastic grocery bags. It goes with my laundry room/pantry area too! You can see a plastic bag sticking out the opening, ready to be used as a small trash can liner or lunch bag.

It's always a good thing when you can still use something that you spent so much time on to create, but didn't turn out perfectly. Good job!

You are so clever! I don't have a clothesline, but that is so useful that maybe I'll make one for my grocery bags.

Great idea to repurpose it for something else!!

I often create for everyone else so it takes a flop for me to get one for myself!

I like your clothespin bag and the idea for using it for storing plastic bags.

I love the fabric and at least you were able to salvage it. That is a great idea to use it for bags.
