Pattern Release: First Blush Clothespin Apron

First Blush Cover- Online onlyAh, the first blush of morning! My first pattern release is finally here! The First Blush Clothespin Apron is so quick and easy to sew. This project will satisfy your appetite to sew something easy and you’ll love using it once it’s done! I  use mine every single day. It is the perfect companion for hanging clothes on the line early in the morning (or whenever you actually get around to it). Not only does it keep clothespins close at hand, but is also perfect for cooking, cleaning, and crafting!

This pattern is so quick and easy, it’s less than a page of instructions and is so quick to whip up, you won’t believe it! It started as a better way to hold clothespins while I was hanging laundry, but I’ve discovered that it’s great for lots of other tasks around the house- I’ve even been tempted to wear it out a few times!

Before we go any further, I’d like to give a big thanks to Sara Bittner Photography for these gorgeous images and Brittney Kreider for modeling!

Fabrics & Supplies

I used some really gorgeous fabrics from Cotton & Steel for the blue version of this adorable clothespin apron! Find more great fabrics online at!

To make this pattern with 3 different fabrics, you’ll need 1/2 yard of each (1/2 for the pocket, 1/2 for the liner, and 1/2 for the tie).

The red version (below) uses a single fabric for all parts. You’ll only need 1 1/4 yards of that fabric. I found this fabric from the Serenata Collection by Samantha Walker for Riley Blake Design.

  1. This is great! I love that it’s simple and quick…not to mention very practical! Congrats!

  2. What a great idea. I’ve never thought of storing the clothespins in an apron and then wearing them to hang the clothes. Thanks for linking up to TGIFF.
