If you manage to even find your peg bag again after the winter, the chances are it's probably grown a bit of mould or acquired a rather unpleasant damp smell. Before you go out and buy another one we've got the perfect project to get you ready for spring and that uplifting moment when you hang your washing outside for the first time. To make this stylish peg bag all you need is a coffee or peanut sack or rectangular section of a sack, some scissors, a ruler and sewing machine with a universal needle. Coffee sacks are available for rescue at most local roasteries, alternatively you could try garden centres or pet shops for peanut sacks. The result? A peg pag to be proud of and the great sense of satisfaction that comes from making something lovely (and useful!) from rescued material.
