A New Peg Bag

So my old peg bag had seen better days particularly since having a little helper to hand me the pegs it has ripped and been patched too many times.  So on an impulse during Little L's sleep this afternoon I got out my sewing machine and had a rummage through my material.  

None of which was particularly inspiring so a chose a piece of old oilcloth.  How hard can it be to sew???Well having finished said peg bag I have a new appreciation of why Cath Kidston oilcloth bags are so expensive.  The sides seams were easy, with right sides together the oilcloth goes through the machine easily.  But a couple of seams were wrong sides together so oilcloth outwards and the machine does not like that.  The feed doesn't work so you have to keep pulling it out as you sew.

Anyway the finished article is better than the one I had before and considering i had a helper for part of the task I don't think it looks too bad


  1. Looks good. I've never tried to sew oilcloth but I have some blue spot oilcloth, maybe I could have a go. Sarah

  2. Oh I like your peg bag ,the material looks familiar ! We're have I seen it before ?
