Many have been looking for how to make clothespin rocking chairs. Thanks to Ray for sending in this pattern and pictures. These would be fun to make for Christmas presents or for a doll house.

These use the regular clamp type wooden clothespins. Take them apart and put together like the pattern. A little pillow can be put on as a cushion or fabric covered stuffing glued to the frame. This would also make a handy pin cushion.

Since I read your post, I too, have been searching for instructions on how to make a Clothespin Rocking Chair. It is now approx 3 hours later and using all the search engines I know of, I have had no luck.

I did come across this link, that has pictures, but no instructions. I suppose we will have to figure out how to make one ourselves, from the pics that are provided.

During my search, i came across a mention of a Clothespin Wishing Well, which sounded very interesting, but alas the link was dead. If anyone comes across a link or a picture of one i would like to know.

Use hot glue and you can take it apart if it doesn't look right, but only use a drop on the clothespins. Make the seat and the bottom of the chair first then add the back. This is not the rocker, but I'm still working on it. This is only my demo.
