Reversible Peg Bag
This very useful reversible peg bag is one of our ‘Covid 19 warrior projects‘ aimed at bringing us all together in a common cause in these unprecedented times. They will be simple but practical projects that even newbies can handle without too much difficulty.
The idea being that we can all look back later and get something positive from the experience. That we will all feel closer as fellow human beings, having been through a time of great sadness and loss of life, not to mention the financial implications for the future.
What you will need to complete your peg bag
Two sheets of A4 paper, placed in landscape and taped together with a 2″(5 cm) overlap.
Small coat hanger
Ruler, coloured pens and scissors for cutting paper
0.5 metre 150cm cotton fabric. matching thread
Small plate approx 7″ (18cm) diameter for semi circle template
- Draw out your pattern using the hanger as your template, centred on your paper. Add a 3/8″, 1 cm seam allowance.
- Measure 9/1/2″ (24cm) up from the bottom edge and draw a line across. Find the centre of the line and draw a vertical line 3″ (7.5 cm) down.
- Take your plate and centre it, so that the base of the curve is sitting on the vertical line. Draw around the plate to form a semicircle.
- Cut out your pattern and use it to cut four pieces. Two will be the fronts and two will per the backs.
- It will be assembled so that it is fully lined and reversible. You could use a contrast fabric for the backs, should you wish.
We’d love to see your pics of completed Covid warrior projects!
Why not make it even more practical by lining with a contrast fabric, so two for the price of one; we all love a bargain! Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll post them in our special Covid Warrior gallery. A commemoration of the time the whole world came together in our fight against a common, invisible but deadly enemy.
