Vintage Peg Bag

Hi, sometimes life just gives you what you want. I am putting together a new course for night school in Shap; sewing for the home. As all things vintage are in vogue, I looked around for a pattern for a peg bag which looked like a little dress, but couldn't find what I was looking for.

A neighbour is downsizing and asked if I wanted her old 1950s Singer sewing machine, of course I said yes immediately. Isn't she beautiful?

She also had this bag of goodies.

And would you know it inside folded up was a paper pattern for a peg bag.

I soon set to work, and here it is, one cute peg bag. 

Ready for the students in my class to make.
