Stolen Fabric!




My domestic staff have been complaining about our shoddy peg bag for a while now.  I made it at least 15 years ago and I am disappointed it hasn't lasted longer,  even with repairs!


Go hard or go home, I had to seriously up the fabric quality in this essential item. 
 I recently acquired some gorgeous barkcloth that was just right for the job.


An un-returned sample, the shame of it.


I had the perfect companion in my stash, another un-returned sample.
Both top notch fabrics made in England, 
56 years ago for the cotton and far longer ago for the mohair.


 I put all other work aside for the happiness of my little laundry assistants who are forever leaving a trail of pegs down the garden, Hansel and Gretel style.


A definite improvement, I'm expecting at least 25 years out of this one.
