Today I felt the need to make myself a new pegbag
For months I have been struggling with my broken peg basket
As the temperature rose, I started to melt…it is currently 32.5° here at 16.22 pm
Having spent yesterday tidying up my sewing room I really wanted to start messing it up again ….
I had this (what I thought was simple) project in mind..
Soo, I decided not to cut into any big pieces of fabric, but to use scraps, I love almost all of my fabrics so it wasn’t hard to find pieces that complimented each other.
I followed the directions/pictures in the pattern and realised what an old fiddle it was to put together and will definitely make some changes to how I put my next one together…oh yes, there will be a next one because the finished article is delightful. One thing I will change is that I will put binding around the hole in the front, this will make the whole quilting and sewing together so much quicker. I need to find some of those bigger clips too, the ones that climbers use to hang their kettles, ropes and axes from their belts? I have no idea what they are called??
but wait…would this bag not be a useful addition to a spinners kit?
I filled it with 150g of my Wylie fibre and decided that it would be such a pretty bag to keep it free of dust as you draft it for spinning….
It also sits on it’s bottom beautifully
Love how the stripes chevron at the back….
This one will be my peg bag, not something I would leave outside in all weathers though…
So, that is how I have spent this very hot day after I went and got weighed at my slimming group this morning. Can you believe that I managed to lose the half a pound that I put on at last week’s weigh in. I am delighted, especially when you consider the cake and ice creams I ate at Fibre-East at the weekend
I also want to offer a public apology to those of you that are waiting for me to sew you something beautiful. I know I should have been getting on with my orders but I needed to familiarise myself with my workroom as I’ve not worked in there for about a month. Also, I can’t make any needle organisers until next week as hopefully I will have my new overlocker by then…I am sillily excited about this new machine. I felt a bit sad seeing my old overlocker leave on Saturday, but I know it has gone to a very good home and will be well loved. I am totally lost without one though, what a numpty
So there we have it, peg bag or fibre holder?
I will be making some of these for sale when I have completed my sewing and dyeing orders…
