Handmade Retro Peg Bag

I made another peg bag! It’s the first of 2015 and my seventh (here’s number one, two, three, four, five and six). Grab your sunglasses people – it’s a BRIGHT one!


I made it for a little retro magpie that I know and it’s my most favouritist yet. I feel bad for one, two, three, four, five and six but it’s truuuue. I found the material in the bargain bin at Heathcoat’s Retail Shop in Tiverton and it was love at first sight. How fun are those bright colours and the playful pattern? If you want to make your own version, I put together a little how-to in this post 😉


Cats & Spots Peg Bag

If you like cats and you like spots, you’re going to love this peg bag.


This is my second peg bag, number 1 was made as a house warming gift, and number 2 has been made for my mum’s birthday. Yes, mum loves pussy cats, especially the Siamese variety, so the fabric I’ve chosen is as purrrfect as a peach. This time I experimented with contrasting fabric on the outside for a kookier finish. Now to make one for Aunt Sarah, she likes flowers…
