Thank you for stopping by today! I’m really excited about the new creative buzz I’m on… now the bootie saga has ended!!! I was first inspired by this idea when I saw on Attic24 a book Lucy had bought, in it were some pictures of some gorgeous crochet coat hanger covers… To die for in fact… I wanted to make one then and there! Alas I had no coat hangers that would suit being covered, I’ve been hunting for them everywhere since, but do you know what?
I found some FINALLY. Where?
The Warehouse. Evil Warehouse… although I heard them on the tannoy today saying they won a greenpeace award for sustainable wood last year, so they deserve a bit of kudos. Anyway, they were only $3.99! For 3! Fabulous!
So what to do with some averagely boring wooden coat hangers???
Why, make them beautiful of course!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That’s my first one… It’s not particularly innovative or original… and there are many mistakes… but wait, there’s more!
I’m loving them because I can decorate them with flowers… I wouldn’t WEAR flowers… but these, these are made for floral decoration.
They’re pretty easy… I did my cover with a 5mm hook and 8ply wool, ch 70 and 5 rows of treble, then sc together with a 3.25mm hook, then embellish!
I have so many more ideas in my head for these, and 7 more coat hangers awaiting decoration on my table, so stay tuned!!!
And if you try one, let me know so I can admire your handiwork!
I’m very much enjoying Kirsty’s creative space at kootoyoo (check my fave blog lists, I still am not able to do that “here” thing!!!) I’m finding so many awesome blogs and inspiring people.
Have a lovely creative day! From Alice and Raymond XX
