While camping: hanging up dishcloths, cuptowels, hand/bath towels, bathing suits, wet clothing - it hooks over a tree limb, through a tent loop or grommet, on the suit hanger in the car, or from the adjustment bars that hold most head rests in place. For travel: remove it from the hanger for ease of packing, and use an on-site hanger over the shower head or shower curtain rod to dry hand-washed things. At home: great for drying all those socks, underwear and other unmentionables, or various little things on the clothesline, and for drying those soggy mittens, hats, etc. after playing in the snow.

[Clothespin Hanger with Socks]
Step 1: Supplies needed:
2. One package (about 60 inches or 1.5 meters) of 1/4 inch (7 mm) cotton or polyester-cotton twill tape (polyester can be used, but tends to fray more easily)
3. One piece of cord elastic, 12 inches (25 mm) long
4. Newspaper pattern
5. Two pieces matching scrap material, each approximately 7x18 inches (18x46 mm). Use a fairly sturdy material (cotton, cotton/polyester blends), print or plain, that will survive a lot of sunshine and the weight of the wet clothes.
