There are few things nicer than the smell of laundry that has been dried outside in the warm sunshine and gentle breezes of summer. I find the task of pegging out the washing quite relaxing at this time too – a great opportunity to be outside, listening to bird song and enjoying the perfume of summer garden flowers.
Of course pegging out washing implies that you have pegs but what to do with them? Sure you can keep them in a utilitarian but boring bucket. But I say if you are going to have something useful then why not have it beautiful too.
Hence my cuter than pie little peg bag that I made last week.
For the clothes, I used a fabric appropriately called Dress me for the Playground. I secured my chosen garments onto the backing fabric with Vilene Bondaweb and then sewed twice around the outline. No fancy free-motion embroidery here. Just careful sewing with my normal sewing foot.
Lined in white cotton with a fancy spotted trim, my little peg bag is the perfect place to keep my shark pegs and looks fab on the line.
If you’d like to learn how to make your own peg bag, then why not book on my forthcoming class. The date will be 12 July and details will be on the Fabric HQ classes section very soon.
