Peg Bag

I have another finished project that I'd like to share with you.
This one's a peg bag I've made to replace this one. I'm actually quite
fond of our old peg bag (I love those apple appliques) but after a year
of service it now has a few holes and the stitches on one side have
 unravelled a bit so I thought it's time I make us a new one.

I used pieces from an old table cloth that I bought ages ago
from a vintage shop. Part of it was used to make this cushion cover.
I kept the left over pieces hoping to use them for another project
and there was just enough to make this peg bag.

I like how the solid orange border looks like bias
binding along the opening. I added this small orange
button to keep it closed and for the loop I used one of the
girls' orange elastic hair bands.

I just love the colours and the simple retro design.
The flowers actually remind me a little of Orla Kiely's
Giant Abacus cushion.

So that's our new peg bag. It's bright and cheerful
and makes the job of hanging out the washing a little
bit more fun. It was easy to make too and didn't cost a
penny so I'm even more pleased!

Hope you're all well and having a great week.
We're off to the Isle of Wight for a week's holiday
but I'll try to be back here soon. See you!


  1. This is so cute and such a great idea! I never thought to make something so cute. I love the color, such a cheerful color!

  2. So bright and cheerful! Have a lovely, fun-filled week! I will be looking forward to hearing (and seeing) all about it!

  3. I like it.
    the colours are so full of sun.
    I nominate you for a liebster award so just have a look here:
    have a great weekend.

  4. I agree, bright and cheerful Marion. The orange border does look like bias binding. Have a good weekend

  6. Lovely! It will make hanging out the washing a pleasure rather than a chore! I am sure you will find a way to re-fashion the old pegbag into something lovely!

  7. Have a lovely holiday! Many many happy memories of time spent on the Island, just over the water from where I grew up!

  8. I love this! That fabric is just fabulous, with it's bold repeating pattern and gorgeous sunny warm colours. Beautiful. x
