Where to find?

I wondered if someone knew where I could find a clothes pin holder for the clothes line? My Grandmother made me one years ago from a small dress and sewed up the bottom of it and placed a hanger on it to hang on the line. I can't sew but thought there may be somewhere to buy one.

Take a gallon plastic jug and cut a gap in the lower part of the handle so you can hand it on the clothes line and a hole in the side big enough to get to the clothes pins. Small drain hole in bottom if you leave it hanging on the line all the time.

If you cut off a pair of jeans right below the crotch, you can glue the legs shut, and unwind a coat hanger, and thread it through the rear belt loops, then rewind it together.

If you have an iron, you can make one without sewing.
A product called "stich witchery" (may be other brands, too) can be ironed
between the two layers of the little dress and it will seal it closed just like sewing would.
Then insert a hanger and fill with clothes pins!!

Fabric Glue is a wonderful item also for those who do not like to sew. You have to be sure and get the kind especially for fabric... it doesn't wash out. My grandma had one of those too.... Thanks for the memory!
