TRYING NEW THINGS

diy02

I am so in love with this fabric I found at Hobby Lobby lol!friends often ask how many things can I get into, a lot! lol! I had been wanting to try my hand at padded cloths hangers for  awhile & a thank you for helping me  for a friend seemed the perfect time to try it out

first the hangers are wrapped with batting, you can add a touch of glue to secure, I used a permanent fabric glue, the red is my sample,  I wasn’t about to cut into that fabric just yet! if I’ve learned anything at all from the sew your own wardrobe for  a year challenge, it’s to make a sample first lol! diy03

then I traced around one of the padded hangers & made a template

now we can cut into that delicious fabric & start sewing lol! diy01

there were a few spots where the batting decided to move so I just filled in the slack with fiberfill & thus six little padded hangers were born!

I noticed the closer I got to the last one they were looking better lol so I will try my hand at them again

here’s the source I used on you tube

they are lovely! turned out so nice.
i have some padded hangers that i enjoy, but are store bought.

you sure could personalize them by making them yourself.
