Feed Sack Clothes Pin Holder

I have been hanging on to the feed sack for a while. I thought it looked interesting and my son's last name is Kelly. In the back of my mind, I was going to make it into a pillow for my DIL (Daughter-In-Law) but she hates throw pillows! Is that even possible?

But when we were visiting this summer, she was hanging clothes out on the line and didn't have a clothes pin holder to use! BINGO! I just realized what I was going to be doing with this feed sack!
I cut down one of Hubby's wooden suit hangers, then used that to be able to sew the top of the feed sack to the profile of the wooden hanger.  I used brown bias tape to trim the raw edges.
I cut a hole large enough to comfortably get a hand in to retrieve clothes pins. The button is there just for an accent.
It was a quick and simple solution. The front graphic is still intact and now it is useful for my DIL...

 ...and NOT A PILLOW!
