Peg Bag

I knew that the leftover waterproof fabric that was used to make the change pad for Miss M before she was born would come in for a use one day and today was the day.      There was a very old and tired looking peg basket hanging on the clothesline which was well past its use by date.    Not having done any sewing this week it was off to the sewing room after lunch to whip something up quickly.   I had thought about  making some little zippered pouches which are popping up everywhere on blogs but when I spotted the waterproof fabric  it had to be the peg bag first.      This was a very quick and easy project and I just really followed my nose when making it.   Fortunately the binding was cut and just needed a press so the whole process took just under 30 mins.    The hanger is a child's size one which was lurking in the back of the cupboard so this is really a scrap project from start to finish.


If anyone enjoys reading a good book which hooks you, then reels you in and gives a surprise ending that you do not see coming then I can thoroughly recommend Whispers and Lies by Joy Fielding.



I borrowed this book from our local library and could not put it down until the end.    Hubs is now reading it and he is totally hooked and reeled in  but I have not let on about the ending.  I am sure that he will be just as surprised as me.  

Tomorrow is a public holiday here which means that Miss M will be enjoying the day with her mummy and daddy instead of coming to grandma and grandpa's house and as I have an abundance of limes and lemons given to me by a friend I am going to give making lemon and lime butter a go as well as making a start on some zippered pouches.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

Nice peg bag and thanks for the book review. I have just finished reading "I see you" by Clare Macintosh, which I think that you would like.
