Prettyfying an old hanger

maRRose - CCC: crocheted cover for hangerThe internet being an endless source of inspiration and wonderful ideas, I came across prettyfied hangers like this quite a lot, most recently here, but before that already here and here. The biggest challenge was to get a hold of the old-fashioned kind of hangers needed for a make-over like this.
My sweet parents actually found one in their wardrobe and donated it for the prettyfying cause.

And you know what? Today, during a short stop at my local thrift store my daughter and I found 18 (eighteen!!) old-fashioned wooden hangers that are just screaming to be prettified – I’m happy!

    • Aw, thanks, Heike! Yes, I was thrilled to find so many in one visit; the people in the thrift shop were actually so nice to get clothes off the old-fashioned hangers for me ……..
      Happy crocheting, dear! xx
