Inspired by this wee number from bed bath n table...
I decided to make my own!
Found some material, two types
Cut it to the size I wanted
Then sewed down the sides of each individually...
...to make two separate bags
I then sewed the bottom corners of the bags together
Then folded down the top and sewed along the edge.
I marked with chalk where the draw-string would come out
Using the buttonhole setting on my machine I sewed two places for where the string would exit
I cut down the middle of each to make the holes
Then I placed the drawstring around the neck of the bag and through the holes.
Making another fold in the neck, I covered the drawstring and pinned it out of the way, in order to sew the neck down without catching the string.
I sewed along the edge
And tested that it worked!
I then knotted the string on edge side so it wouldn't come undone.
Next I sewed on a loop of ribbon. This is so you can hang the bag at the washing line!
Next I embroidered this fancy doily type thing my friend Felicity gave me. It reads 'Pinces à linges' which is French for Clothes Pegs.
I hand-stitched this onto the bag
It was all finished!
I then filled it with pegs...
...and tested it out!
