Happy Sweet Day!!
Hope that your week is going wonderfully! Sorry it has been quite around here, but I have been busy working and finishing up my newest project! My vintage inspired clothespin bag!! I have been wanting to make a clothespin bag for awhile, and knew those sweet kittens were the perfect start to this project.
The pattern was inspired by the pretty vintage clothespin bags I have come across. So, after working out some kinks and mistakes, it all sweetly came together! And, I love how it turned out!
Pretty vintage lace, an emerald green crocheted hanger lovingly crocheted by me using a vintage wooden hanger, with a sweet pink variegated flower and green and cream ties, pink gingham peaking through...
and some sweet hand-stitching around those cute kitties washing their lost mittens! ;) I used mostly reproduction prints to give it a more vintagey feel, which I just love!
And, the back sweetly adorned with some vintage lace!! It was such a fun process, and I can't wait to do some laundry or at least pretty vintage linens! ;)
Thank you so much to the most lovely Kathy of Kluless for having such a sweet Etsy shoppe with vintage laces and treasures, as I ran out of some lace trim in the process and she had what I needed to finish these pretties below!
So, if you would fancy one for yourself, I just listed these two vintage inspired clothespin bags in my shoppe! Embroidered and hand-stitched by me with lots of love and attention to detail. They each come with their own pretty crocheted hanger and flower, and they are both adorned with delicate vintage lace. You can see more details about them here and here. So, are you ready for 'wash day'?
Now back to my working on my hexies and ripples! What crafty goodness are you working on?
Wishing you all a beautiful rest of the week and weekend!!
