Sweater Covered Hanger

If you are like me you like to hang coats and nice blouses on fabric non slip hangers.

Approximate Time: 1 hour

Supplies:

  • old sweater
  • Ad

  • one hanger
  • sewing machine
  • needle and thread
  • pins
  • wide lace
  • scissors
  • marker

Instructions:

If you have an old sweater laying around here is a way to put it to good use.

  1. Lay your hanger on the back of the sweater with the hook at the neck, draw around it.
  2. Now carefully flip the hanger so the hook is pointing in the opposite direction and the bottom of the hanger is laying on the line you drew for the bottom. trace around the curves and top edges. Cut it out 1/2 inch outside this drawn line. Pin the fabric together before sewing.
  3. Refering to the photo start sewing at one pin and continue around the bottom and back up toward the hook. Turn the cover right side out slip the hanger in, it will be a tight fit but if you back stitched good it will hold. Pin the opening shut and hand sew it shut.

  5. Take around 8 inches of wide lace and gather it. Run your needle through the base from one side to the other several times to secure all of the fabric together. Now start untwisting your lace which will loosen the fabric so you can fold some of the outer edges back as petals. Just keep playing with it until you like what you have. Pin it to your hanger at the hook and then sew it down.
