Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Follow very basic pattern instructions. Layout, pin and cut a paper pattern. Sew a straight line

Pattern Description:

I have a little obsession with making the mundane in our lives pretty. If you have to hang washing on a regular basis why not do it in style?
This ergonomically designed peg apron is 30cm (approx 12") long so that when in use the pegs are in easy reach - no bending and stretching while you fossick around looking for a peg. That might not seem ground-breaking but as a mother I:
a. do a lot of washing; and
b. did a lot of baby wearing when my girl was younger - therefore saving my back from strain is a big deal to me.

Features include:
*sturdy medium/heavy weight (aka "decor weight") fabric for the body
*neat top-stitching and details such as ricrac trim
*designer quilters cotton sash; and
* a handy little loop to store your apron on a hook when not in use
