How to: Clothes peg bag

July 14, 2011


It’s so nice to dry your laundry on a clothesline in the summer months.  I feel like it’s saves money and extends the life of your garments. I made this clothes peg bag from those promotional canvas tote bag that companies always seem to giving away. (I turned my tote inside out so that the promotional images are on the inside.) My tote is about 12.5″ wide and about 17″ tall. I think a smallish tote works well for making a clothes pegs bag. You can always trim a large tote to a smaller size.

What you will need:

  • a canvas tote bag
  • some contrasting fabric (1m x 1.5″) for the edging
  • and some velcro.

Step 1: Cut your tote (as shown in diagram) and a half oval piece for the top closure.  You can use the leftover scraps from the tote or your contrasting fabric for the top closure piece.


Step 2: Sew two strips of velcro to the top closure piece and attach it to the bag. Finish off with some contrasting fabric for the edging.
