Fabric Covered Clothespins


Today, I’m linking up with Dandelion House, Petals to Picots, Chubby Cheeks Thinks, Finding Fabulous, 504 Main, Thirsty World Designs and Serenity Now.

I first saw clothespins covered in fabric in a craft shop in Toronto about a million years ago. I loved them right away but didn’t buy them because I had no idea what I’d do with them. It wasn’t long after that I was hanging up a masterpiece made by one of the littles with a horribly plain clothespin on a string in the play room. That was the first thing I decided I needed them for. I ended up painting some wooden clothespins to use for this.

Then a couple of years ago, I came across Martha’s Mitten Clips, they’re super cute to attach to packages. I think it’s especially sweet to make them in a cold climate and send them to friends and family in warmer places (which is the opposite of what we’ve got going on right now….).

Then I came across this tutorial on Creature Comforts and I knew I had to try! They took maybe 10 minutes and I adore them. Next up of course will be glittered clothespins, clothespins with cute flowers and pom poms and stuff glued to them. I’m far too into this, I know. But so cute – look!

All I did was cut a strip of double sided tape for both sides of each clothepin, then cut fabric the same size and then pressed the fabric to the tape! Voila!
