50+ FREE Clothespin Bag Sewing Patterns

Have you ever struggled to keep track of your clothespins?

Well, I certainly have. It sounds like a small issue but if you're trying to get away from always using the clothes dryer and want to take advantage of what mother nature has to offer –sun and breeze– to dry your clothes, you're going to need clothes pins.

We moved from Singapore to Chile a couple of years ago. While much of our household was still in shipment, we needed to start our household in the new country. The weather was great and we didn't want to buy a new electric dry since we had one on the way. So I needed to use the outdoor laundry line and thought it would be simple since I only needed some clothespins.

Not so simple it seems unfortunately. Turns out good clothespins are quite hard to find here, and if you're lucky enough to find some quality ones –most seem to disintegrate on the first use– you're really going to want to keep track of them.

So I decided to make a clothespin bag and needed a pattern. We don't currently have our own on So Sew Easy so I put together a long list of the best clothespin bag sewing patterns I could find and now I want to share this with you.

I remember when I was given a clothes pin bag like many of those shown. I used it for almost 40 years before it wore out. I hung out diapers in all dry weather, year round. In freezing weather, you could tell when the diapers were dry. They would start swinging like boards and when they dried they flapped. 😀 Since my old one died, I started using a nail apron. It is handier since I didn’t have to carry several pins back to the item I was hanging or keep moving the bag.

My mother had made my clothes pin holder out of my daughter’s out grown pajamas. The ones that zipped up the front and had feet (one piece). She removed the legs and sewn the bottom together. She left the sleeves on. I put a hanger in it and it’s been the best clothes pin holder for me. I just unzipped it or zip it up! That was 43 years ago and I still use it!!
