Introducing a new Fun stuff from SCRAPS Pattern – Piggy CLOTHES PEG Bag

Sep 29, 2011 | Blog, NEW Toy Patterns

The idea for my Piggy Clothes Peg Bag came to me one day when I had 3 HUGE loads of washing to be hung!

Homemade Clothes-peg BAG

We have been verrrrry lazy, after having so many years of drought – we would just leave our pegs lying on the garden table as we had no peg bag for them. NOW with ALL the flooding rains, they’ve RUSTED!

PEGS rusted

I didn’t want just a common, old, boring sqaure bag… so I have been playing around and designed something a little bit more FUN!

I was really happy with how she turned out – I thought she looked great indoors…


BUT I think she looks ever cuter on the washline! : )

… NOT to forget that cute squiggly tail!!!

I had some cute piggy-coloured fabric that I wanted to use for my peg bag BUT while I was making the pattern, I realised that you could also re-purpose pillowcases to make your homemade peg bag – how cool is that!

I’ve had a lot of fun making this cute piggy bag and I hope it’ll add a little bit of fun to YOUR wash day blues! : )
