101 uses for clothes pegs

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

28. Here's a novel one - spinning wool with a dolly peg. It's a video I put onto the Roundhouse, but you don't have the youTube BB code here so a link to the forum will have to do.

Been reading through these and was reminded of other ways I've used them

29. to make lucet cords
30. clip the bottom of loose sleeves to a bit further up to stop them getting in the way when cooking and washing up.
31. clip trousers up when they won't stay rolled up and you need to pop out to the garden when it's muddy

This may already be on here, I can't be bothered to read them all, sorry :oops:

I've seen sponsorship of someone seeing how many clothes pegs they can attach to their face! The funniest bit is seeing all the red marks after they take them off :iconbiggrin:

As they say, 'One man's trash....'

Just found another use, I've put one one my mouse cable where it disappears down the back of the desk - saves me keep having to pull on it.

Moving swiftly on from the nipple clamps....
My mum uses a clothes peg at the top of her seat belt to stop it pulling tight over her front and hence creasing up her outfit! Pleading with her that this might impair the operation of the seatbelt in an accident has been in vain. How can a woman so concerned with looking smart have produced...me?

Hanging a tea towel near the sink.

I've got tile in the kitchen and can't screw in a hook, so I suction cupped one on and found that the tea towel kept falling off. So i attached a peg to the top of the towel and hung it from the hook that way.

Has anyone mentioned spinning wool with a dolly peg yet? I did a youtube vid of it. if anyone wants to know how to do it let me know and I'll put on a link. It's quite a fun thing to do with the kids too, it is the summer hols after all.
