I found some burlap covered hangers at a sale last weekend and I loved them so much I decided to try my hand at making some myself. I used two white satin covered hangers I had on hand that I used to display vintage clothing.
I cut a large rectangle larger than I needed that when folded would fit over the hanger. I cut a very small hole to insert the looped piece. Then I cut closer to make a quasi pattern. I simply tucked one side of the fabric under the other, folded the other piece to make a small hem and then stitched them together. I carefully tucked in the ends and cut and trimmed so I didn't have too much fabric on the ends of the hanger. First I started hemming in the middle of the hanger so it was anchored well and then I did the ends and worked inward. You can look at the back side of my hangers in photograph number 3. For the hook part I used some ribbon I had on hand and used tacky glue to attach it to the hook.
If you read my blog yesterday, you already know I have a little bit of everything in my creative space so I didn't have to purchase one single thing for this project. I love the burlap with the lace. It's the perfect yin and yang. Below is a photo of my inspiration hangers.
The backs of my inspiration hangers don't look any better than mine so I think it's just a stitch as you go process. After the ribbon dried on the hook, I cut enough ribbon to tie a little bow around it to finish it off. I love these. BTW, the inspiration hangers are just burlap over wood hangers. I personally like the more padded look but it's a matter of preference. Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by.
