Everyone has hang ups and a giveaway!
Some hangups are just prettier than others. This hanger makes me cringe. I have spoken to my distaste of wire hangers before. Nothing makes me cringe more than to see a garment that someone has worked so hard on and is so proud of hanging limply on a wire hanger. Aggh!! I hate it. If you go back through all of the posts you will see garments hung mostly on satin padded hangers. A couple on some vintage nursery hangers. Mostly on the padded hangers.
So in light of a nursery that is going to be filled with garments lovingly made, I made a few hangers. Some to match a garment and some because I was on a roll.
This sweet hanger was made to match a daygown that is not quite finished yet. It is a duck print pique trimmed with yellow gingham piping.
These are made from Imperial batiste, trimmed with scraps of lace, some machine embroidery and piped with whip stitch piping. To top it off, a little ecru bow. I love blue and ecru together. I am not as big a fan of pink and ecru. And I adore white and ecru. Maybe I will make some white and ecru hangers as well.
This is a close up to see the simple embellishment on the front. This lace was literally a scrap in the bottom of the box of laces. It was not longer than 4" long. I used Sulky rayon thread to do the diamonds on either side which is a decorative stitch on my machine.
So to help stamp out wire hangers I am going to offer a give away. It will include one of the hangers I just made plus two other padded satin baby hangers. All three pictured above. There is more than one way to enter in the giveaway. You know how bloggers love comments. So:
#1 Leave a comment and tell me what you are working on.
#2 If you are a follower AND leave a comment, you will be entered twice.
#3 If you have a blog, post a link in your comment where you mention the give away on your blog. This will also get you an additional entry.
Please, no email comments. Only comments left here will be eligible. When I announce the winner, they will need to email me their mailing address.
This give away will be open until January 28th at midnight. Good luck everyone! And help stamp out wire hangers.
