Well as the weather hasn't been on our side, I had to find another way to brighten up wash day...
I have been in need of a new peg bag for ages.
My ugly plastic thing made me cringe every time I hung it on the line.
I was making this Cath Kidston bag using the free kit in "Sew" when I unexpectedly acquired two free Cath Kidston handbags! Did I never tell you about that?!? How jammy am I, I couldn't believe my luck!
Any way, that meant this one was sort of surplus to requirement, so I decided it would be my new peg bag.
The entire bag was hand sewn, including buttonholes and every thing.
Because the handle fastens with buttons, I can undo one and fasten it over the washing line or wear the bag so all my pegs are to hand.
And of course, once I had my new peg bag, the ghastly plastic pegs had to go and have since been replaced by nice wooden ones (cheap as chips in the £1 shop!)
Well after I had a pretty home for my pegs that went rather well with my floral laundry basket (perhaps I show you that another time) I turned my attention to the ironing board.
I snapped up this cute cover in Matalan for the bargain price of £3 , well actually I didn't even pay that as I had a voucher code for 30% off!
So the weather can do what it wants, because my florals will brighten up wash day!
I'll leave you with another little drawstring bag I made to go in the bathroom.
They are so easy to make and so useful for storage. I can't get enough.
Also hanging in my bathroom is my "new" vintage summer dressing gown - £3.50 at the charity shop. :-)
How are you brightening up wash day?!?!
Lots of Love
