I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Upcycled Jeans Clothespin Bag

There's nothing like the smell of fresh towels and sheets dried on a clothesline! And here's a cute place to store your clothespins. This little craft will literally take you only 10 minutes to make...I swear!!

What you'll need:

an old pair of jeans
a plastic hanger

Mark where you want to cut the legs off with pins. Leave enough room to hold all your clothespins, then cut both legs off. Turn the jeans inside out, then cut out the crotch seam and sew the sides together on both the front and the back where the crotch had been. Sew a hem along the bottom to close off the bottom of the bag. Turn it right side out.

Now place the hanger in the waist and sew along the top at each side 2 or 3 inches to hold the hanger in place. If you are using larger jeans/larger hanger you may need to sew a bit more to hold it in place. (These were my daughter's "teenie" jeans 😒)

Open the zipper and fill the bag with clothespins. You can even tuck more in the pockets!
