Freebie Friday: Cute and Padded Coat Hangers

Wire hangers. Ugh. We’ve all used them only to find they easily get tangled up together and often leave odd shapes in the shoulders of our favorite sweaters. Today’s Freebie Friday will help you make some extremely adorable and padded coat hangers that can help solve all those problems—plus they will perk up any bedroom!

Capture

what you will need…

  • 20 x 65cm floral fabric
  • wooden coat hanger
  • padding (old tights or top cut into 10cm strips works well)
  • 60cm bias binding
  • matching sewing thread
  • sewing kit
  • and perhaps the book that inspired it…
