Your response is FULL of these differences:
washing line = usually "clothes line"
garden = often "yard" unless it's were you grow flowers to cut or vegetables
trouser = "pants" (tee hee)

Also, although it has been years since I've been able to have a line outdoors I remember having trouble with it falling off the line if the wind kicked up and I usually left it out there when the laundry was on the line so that happened quite a bit.  So I think I am going to give this messenger bag method a shot!  Which also means I don't have to come up with a small hanger. WOO!

Ha! Hope the messenger bag works for you too - still loving mine!


I love hanging clothes outside and have a traditional old shirt "peg" bag on a hanger. Allergies have forced me back inside to the dryer. Pollen filled sheets make for sneezy sleep.

Is that View Master discs on the fabric? Where did you find it?

Yes! I loved my view master as a child, so was very excited to find this... it's a Kokka linen/cotton blend. I got mine as a fat quarter from a local shop, but I've just googled 'kokka view master' and there seems to be lots of it out there. The view master discs have some great titles: 'Tomato Aspic Salad', 'World of Tomorrow', a New Home on Mars'.

I just love all the little differences in our "common" language.

Me too!

So I'm curious about your bag, do you wear it?  Most of the bags I've pinned as reference are built around a clothes hanger and hung on the line to move along as you fill it.  Wearing it also makes sense.

Yes - I wear it across my body like a messenger bag so it's exactly where I need it. Hanging it on the line never worked for me - any little movement of the washing line and I'd have pegs scattered all over the garden (that happened a lot), so I'd end up hanging it from my trouser pocket, which was bad for my clothes and also not a good look!

This is the new peg bag - or bag for clothespins. (I've just learned that the thing I know as a peg is a clothespin in the US- see comments below!. This is one of the reasons why I love Craftster - how would I have discovered something like that without it?)

My husband said: "Isn't it too nice?"

He might be right - I'm a little bit tempted to reclaim it and use it in real life. And yet it works so much better than the previous peg receptacle. And anything which makes laundry bearable has to be a good thing...

Thanks for having a look!
