You will catch more than a few compliments with this delightful redwork peg bag, embroidered with a wonderful collection of feathered friends all keen to help with the washing.
Stitched in the style of traditional redwork with three shades of red stranded cotton thread, the cylindrical bag is finished at the upper and lower edges with contrasting print fabrics and a row of overlapping fabric petals. A cotton tape strap is attached to the upper edge with red wooden buttons and can be secured to the clothesline with a swivel latch.
The finished basket measures 25cm tall x 17.5cm in diameter (10" x 6 7/8") excluding the hanging strap.
Kit contains: Fabrics, wadding, stabiliser, latch, webbing, threads and needle.
Detailed instructions and pattern for making this project are inside the magazine, Inspirations issue 75.
Please note: Fabrics and notions will be substituted if the originals are not available.
