Do you remember these?
Did your mom or grandmother have these hanging in their closet years ago? I know mine sure did.
My mom taught my sister and I to make these as kids and I have many wonderful memories of the time spent together working on them. This is just one of the things I love most about crafts - the way that sharing your craft can bring people together and build memories.
Recently, I got the hankering to make a few covered hangers again. It is amazing that after years of not doing it, I can pick it up and, without even thinking about it, my fingers know where to go.
To cover the hangers, I used Qualicraft Nylotex.
I am not even sure if Qualicraft Nylotex is still available? I have a huge stash from years ago; the last time I bought some was at Woolco (the predecessor to Walmart in Canada).
I picked up wire hangers at the dry cleaners (they are always willing to give me a handful) and used a measuring piece I have saved for years, to measure out my covering material.
And after a few hours I had five covered hangers to add to my closet.
I love making these hangers every once in a while. They are simple and relaxing to work up, and are so pretty when completed.
Were these hangers around your home?
