Words will only get you so far, actions will show people who you really are.
My mum loved her homemade french cushion I made her the other day. I spent a lovely afternoon chatting mindless with her, drinking tea and eating cupcakes. Bliss.
Do you get sick of delicate or strappy clothes falling off your coat hangers?
I know I do.
In my mothers generation they'd have big frilly and lacy padded hangers. They were either sewn, knitted and crocheted - very kitch but sadly not my cup of tea.
But I had a problem with the clothes falling off.
So I made some shabby-chic fabric wrapped hangers instead. They look great and do the job! They might be a little time consuming... and messy.... but VERY easy to make. There are instructions below.
Materials & Equipment:
A coat hanger - I used a cheap plastic one
Hot glue glue
2. Use a dot of hot-glue to join one end of fabric onto a hanger. I started at the base of the hook.
3. Wrap the fabric around and around and around and around.
4. When you get to an end of fabric, dot with hot glue and repeat with another strip until the whole hanger is covered.
5. Fasten off the last bit of fabric with hot glue, or tie into a knot like I did. Or you could make a shabby-chic fabric rose to tie onto it...
