  • Batting: two pieces 40 x 40 cm (one piece 80 x 40 cm cut in two)

  • Fabric strips: 2 40 x 2cm strips, a fat quarter from the Paisley bird fat quarter set was used in this tutorial

  • Scissors

  • Pins

  • Needle

  • Thread

  • Pencil

  • Coat hanger: 30cm along the base

Step 1

Take your coat hanger and lay it out on the denim fabric, draw a line around the coat hanger leaving a 2cm gap. Draw a line 24 cm down from the bottom of the coat hanger for the bottom of the bag. Next draw a line to connect the line around the coat hanger and the bottom of the bag. Cut out for your front peg bag piece then use this as the template to cut the back of the peg bag.


Step 2

On the front peg bag piece draw a line across the bag 20 cm up from the bottom and cut so you have two pieces for the front of the bag.


Step 3

Using the front and back denim pieces as a template cut out the lining and batting so you have lining and batting for the front and back of the peg bag.

Step 4

Take the front pieces of denim fabric lining and batting, laying the lining fabric down first followed by the batting then the denim fabric, take the fabric strips (35 x 2cm) and place them right sides together against the denim fabric along the top edge of the bottom front piece and bottom edge of the top piece. Sew a line 1.5 cm from the edge of the strips, then fold the strip over to the back. Fold the raw edge over then fold again to make a hem then slip stitch along to hold in place.

Step 5

Take the top front piece and fold the top edge over inwards by 1 cm, repeat for the back piece (making sure to fold the top of back batting and lining piece with it) and pin to hold.




Step 6

Place the front and back pieces right sides together and sew around to secure, making sure to leave the top edge where the top of the coat hanger will come out unsewn. Turn the bag out the right way and your finished.


Step 7

Place the front and back pieces right sides together and sew around to secure, making sure to leave the top edge where the top of the coat hanger will come out unsewn. Turn the bag out the right way and your finished.
