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...

More backstory at http://runcibledays.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/a-little-change-to-make-life-better.html

Thanks for having a look!

What a lovely peg bag.  Should make doing laundry a little more bearable.

so what exactly is a peg, and what does it do for laundry?  Question aside, that's quite a lovely bag.

Making one of these has been on my list since October and now that it's getting close to the season for hanging laundry on the line outside, I have to really get crackin'.  Your project is helping inspire me!

I believe "pegs" are what some non-American English speakers call clothespins.

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

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.

Me too!

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!
