Peg tidy tutorial – Part III

April 15, 2010 § 2 Comments

The next thing to do is to the quilt the top patchwork pieces to the carrier fabric the same way you did for the bottom pieces that will make the pockets. Once you have done this fold the bottom pieces up so they make a pocket and then place the two pieces right sides together. Then stitch down one side, across the bottom and up the other side and then turn it right side out.

Once you have turned it right side and out and pushed out the corners take your last 2.5″ strip of around 26″ and prepare it as you did for the piping on the pockets. FInd the middle of the strip and place it over the middle of the top edge of the peg bag. Pin the piping on and pin the loose bits that hang over the edges. Then sew all the way along.

Tie a knot in each end of the piping and then hang the bag from a skirt/trouser hanger.

    It’s far too pretty to hold pegs! Thanks for the tutorial, I love the idea of using the skirt hangar to hold the bag, very clever.

    I may have missed something. Is there a purpose to the loose bits of binding across the top edge?
