Domesticated moi?

In my quest to be slightly more domesticated and convince hairy that I am a great housewife (im really not, I hate cleaning with a passion, I would much rather be sewing or reading!) I decided that I needed a peg bag! I know that this is a strange confession but I love my washing line at our new house, its one of those ones that spins around and it has a handle that turns to make it go up and down. Its really old fashioned but I really like it. Seeing as im enjoying hanging out the washing at the moment, I thought my life would be made easier with a peg bag

I wanted something that was weather related and had what I thought was a pretty cool idea, I wanted to make the hole for the pegs the sun.

I dont have a picture of the initial sketch I did, but I liked the sketch more than the finished item, even though I am pleased with it

First I had to work out how to actually make it. I decided I wanted it to contain wadding so it wasnt flimsy. Once I got my head around it, it came together pretty quickly


I wish that I had made the sunshine rays more obvious and I wish I had quilted the back. Overall I am very happy with it though, It brightens up a boring household chore
