A Great Use for Leftover Fabric!

Plastic hangers are easy to find and inexpensive, so you may have several in your closet. But, they’re boring and clothes sometimes slip off of them.

Wrap them with fabric scraps to dress them up and to make them non-slip. It’s quick, easy and you can have several hangers finished up in a short period of time.

Plus, pretty hangers make nice gifts. If you’re giving someone you love a beautiful quilt, you can include hangers covered in scraps from the quilt. Or, give a lovely set of hangers with a matching sachet (you’ll find sachet ideas here).

Start with simple plastic (or wire) hangers, which you can find inexpensively at a dollar store. Cut fabric strips 1/2″ wide and then follow the directions provided by Laura Trevey for a quick finish.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
