So, I was working on making some more yarn-wrapped hangers (since those are fabulous. I mean, I get so sick and tired of either picking up stuff that falls off plastic hangers, or buttoning up things that husband/kids hang up, etc..., whoops! I digressed..) and then one day when I was cutting off the selvages of some fabric I had, I thought "Hey! these would be great to wrap around hangers!"
Probably not a novel idea, but I thought of it on my own, and they are turning out so cute. :)
I organized a bunch of selvages my MIL had saved into color groups, and then made some hangers.
The not-so-pretty one, the red/pink/green mix, was my first attempt to see how it went. After that, the other ones have looked so nice. What a wonderful way to not only make a better hanger, but do it with a scrap of fabric that you ALWAYS cut off and never use. awesome! no more wasted fabric for me.
