Spring Cleaning

I may be rushing the season, but I am ready for Spring! Our Christmas trees are out of the house. The Christmas decorations are in storage for next year. The sun is shining. Yes, I am ready for spring cleaning!

That may explain my sudden need to create a clothespin bag! When a package of fabric arrived the other day, I set aside everything, pulled out my sewing machine, and presto, two clothespin bags appeared!

This bag is made from "Monkey 'n Around" fabric. I am not typically a fan of sock monkeys, but add a pink background. . . . I'm now a fan!

The second bag is dear to my heart because it is made from a line of fabric created by Anne Sutton at Bunny Hill Designs. The Beary Boys and Girls Flannel Pink Bouquet fabric is ultra soft and gorgeously PINK! Anne's newest fabric design is Miss Emma's Garden. Love it, Anne!

I don't have a clothesline. I have no need for a bag holding clothespins. Yet, I always have a need for cutepinkstuff fashioned from cute pink fabrics! I envision my bags holding socks, mittens, baby items, ribbons or bows. For now, they just make me smile!

I love that floral clothes pin bag. I don't have a clothesline either and wish I did. I'm ready for spring too!

Cindy, I just love your clothes pin bags, and the monkey looks great on a pink background :) I made a pin bag once but not nearly as nice as yours.
I want to take all the Christmas down too, and now I see you have done it, well maybe I will do that too :)

I also dropped by because I want to let you know you have been tagged by me. Please view my latest post for details :) No pressure if you don't want to do it that's ok, it was my first time too.

love these clothes pin bags! We are a little jealous- many decorations down and a long way to go before Spring cleaning! Whew- and getting ready for the holidays was tough!!!

We might hurry it along after being inspired by your cute bags!

What cute bags you made.

Cindy said...

Those are so beautiful! You could use them to store those plastic grocery bags too!

Every year at this time I'm ready for Spring! It may not be Spring for awhile but I sure enjoy the anticipation of it! I have a lot of bulbs that I'm forcing indoors so it's looking a little like Spring in my house.

Cindy, I just found your blog today. I absolutely adore pink! I would have to say we have A LOT in common. I enjoyed your blog and your website.

Love the bags! I'm just like soon as Christmas is over I'm ready to clear out for the new year.... I need to get back on swanky moms before they kick me off. I've been so busy with holiday stuff I haven't been on in so long! Talk to you soon! Karin
