|The back cut out|
|The front two panels cut out|
|Measure in 5cm's from each end, on the 2 front panels, mark with a pencil, the gap in between will be the opening for the peg bag, do not sew all the way along|
|Put right sides together of the front panels and pin, sew in each side to the pencil line|
|Iron seams out flat, yes I have left an opening it just looks closed|
|Then fold seams over twice and iron flat|
|Sew on the edge of these seams|
|Front panels sewn together|
|Put front panels and back panel together with right side facing, and find the middle top where the coat hanger wire will come through|
|Indicate middle, on either side of hanger, with two pins. This is where you will stop sewing on either side|
|Mark a 2 cm seam allowance all the way around with a pencil and sew on this line|
|Clip corners so it will sit well|
|Turn out the right way, insert coat hanger|
|There you go,one super cute, practical, Peg Bag|
I am a bit fussy with laundry. When I say fussy, I mean, I will put in a little extra effort during the washing and drying phase so that I don't have to iron very much or not at all. My Mum was an amazing ironer. She even used to iron sheets and tea towels. Mum was not a well lady and sadly, we lost Mum when I was in my mid 20's. Even though she was unwell Mum would iron almost all the washing.
Lets just say that I didn't inherit her love of ironing. I line dry everything so I need good pegs. I have used Reva Pegs for ever as they are good quality and seem to last a long time. I love using a peg bag as you can move it will you and it protects the pegs. It may seem silly to be fussy about brand of pegs or doing things like par drying items in the dryer (barely 5 minutes) then putting them on coat hangers, but if that means I don't need to iron then to me its worth the extra bother.
So, tell me, what house work do you "fuss" over?
