Keep your pegs tidy with a Cath Kidston peg bag.
Hanging out the washing is so much easier when your pegs are close to hand, as our grandmothers knew well. Here’s another practical exercise in using bias binding: this time you can learn how to neaten inside curves, by stitching around the opening on this pretty and practical peg bag.
If you can’t find a 30cm coat hanger, you could try shortening a standard one. Measure up and mark a cutting line 15cm from the hook on each arm. Cut the ends off carefully with a small hacksaw and smooth off any rough edges with sandpaper.

Lay the front face downwards and place the hanger centrally across the top, so that the base of the hook lines up with the edge. Draw along the top edge of the hanger, then cut along this line. Fold in half widthways to check the shape is symmetrical and trim as necessary.
Pin the front to the back with wrong sides facing. Trim the top edge of the back so that it is the same shape as the front and tack the two pieces together.
