Felt figures and mini clothes pegs.
The first time I saw one of these mini clothes pegs was at an office where they were being used in the same way as glider clips, to hold papers together. I was entranced by these tiny pegs! Years later, I discovered them again, being used in various craft projects. So when I saw a picture on Pinterest of a mini clothes line complete with pegs, I decided to have a go.
There were no instructions, so I drew the clothes on to freezer paper, pressed them on to iron-on interfacing and cut each piece out. Then I fused that to coloured felt pieces, machined around the edges, and cut them out. I wrote the LAUNDRY letters on to the felt in permanent marker, but I'm planning to embroider over that later.
