If you are using wooden pegs in your craft projects, don't throw the springs away because with beads threaded on them they can be used for jewelry making.
Why are you calling the wooden parts pegs? They are clothes pins used for hanging laundry outside!
Clothespins are also called clothes-pegs in the UK. Here is a Wikipedia link:
because I live in the UK and we call them clothes pegs
In the US, a pin is most often thought to be a safety pin, a straight pin or maybe a cylindrical metal pin often used in machinery. Also in the US, pegs are more often thought of as being a heavy, short wooden dowel such as those attached to a hat rack. Pegs can also be made of metal or plastic such as those used to hang objects from a peg board.
In the US, the manufacturers of clothes pins refer to the wooden parts as neither pins nor pegs, but 'clips'. So, at least in the US, the wooden parts are CLIPS.
I live in the US and have heard the term 'clothes pins' all my life. However, I love the older, often more 'colourful' British/English terms and have no trouble with the term 'clothes pegs'.
So, now that we know they are 'clips', we should also know they are equally suitable for hanging clothes indoors as well as out.
