A few years ago I bought a Swedish quilting magazine called FatQuarter as I loved the Klädnyps-strut (peg bag to non-Swedish speaking quilters!) that was on the front cover. When I went to the Autumn Quilt Festival at Duxford, I bought some super fabric from the Cross Patch stall. This fabric is from the "Washday" range by Makower has a wonderful retro feel to it, and it's just perfect for this peg bag pattern. I also bought a few reels of beautiful Aurifil threads in a selection of colours from the quilt show, and the grey coloured thread that I'd bought blended beautifully with this fabric. This pattern is available from Lappe-Elisa in Sweden, and although the instructions are in Swedish, the photo-style diagrams are really easy to follow. I used Pellon wadding for this project and this is fully machine washable - the design also has a clip so it will hang on your washing line and can slide easily along the line. An ordinary washing line will look SO posh with this pag bag adorned on it!!
