This is the sorry state that my peg bag has been in for several months now. I've been putting off fixing it but finally got a round tuit yesterday!
It took me less than 5 minutes and looks a lot better now - if a little faded and old!
I was actually inspired to mend my peg bag after reading
This is a peg bag I made about 3 years ago after the one that used to be my granny's bag that I was using finally got too old and tattered.
Funny though, looking at these pictures now I see just how old and faded my current bag is.
Perhaps it's time to make myself a new one.
Fortunately I made a tutorial for this peg bag.
The clothes hanging on the little washing line on the bag are all made from pieces of my old clothing. I think when I make a new one this time I'll use more clothing scraps perhaps from my girls old clothes this time.
I was also thinking these may be good to make for the school carnival from the old clothes stash I have. Nice sturdy ones from old jeans!
I'm so glad I got around to this quick fix. Not only is it nice to have a peg bag that isn't falling to bits, but it has filled me with even more inspiration for sewing and upcycling!
What do you need to fix in your house? Why not get it out right now? You never know what else it might inspire you to do.
