A fortnight ago the
cheap and nasty peg bag that came with the pegs I bought last year ripped. Instead of automatically buying a new one, which once upon a time would have been my default mode, I decided to make one. I looked on the internet for ideas and came upon this post. It gave me the inspiration to have a go myself. Mine is not as good as the original, but it is perfectly functional and very sturdy, unlike my previous peg bag. I didn’t worry too much about getting it all perfectly counted because I want to crack on with a birthday present that I am making (and we’re moving house in a fortnight!). It was made using Sirdar Simply Recycled Aran cotton in turquoise and coral, bought from Black Sheep Wools, which I had leftover from making crocheted placemats (pattern here). I used a small hanger from my daughter’s wardrobe to go inside.
