Hanging On


Have you seen this design before?  




It comes from a Japanese book, but is easy enough to copy.  I found an old wooden hanger amongst the ones in my wardrobe and crocheted a cover for it.  I made the teeny weeny flowers from my Ravelry pattern and am going to attach them to the hanger with a crochet chain. 




There is a tutorial on Marmalade Rose's blog for something similar.


Now I would like to make more, but that was the only hanger I had, so I thought I'd buy some more.  After several hours(!!!) on the Internet, I discovered buying more was not possible.  There were:




Kilt hangers...



Bendy, foam-covered hangers...


Flock-finish inflatable hangers...












Flat wooden topped hangers...

Cedar shirt hangers...












Accessory hangers...


Cedar belt hangers...















Clamp hangers with felt...


4-bar, non-slip, huggable trouser hangers...


Non-slip knitwear hangers...



Over-the-door hangers ( in this case specifically for a fire door 45mm thick)...














A tie-shaped tie hanger...


...but the plain, curved, wooden ones?

Only in children's hangers!









HELP! ! ! !

I know. I know I have had the same problem, but looking at marigold jam it looks as if she has the answer! John Lewis here we come!
But your crocheted hanger is lovely,
Kiddlington isn't far from Witney is it?
Wonder how you managed to end up in lovely France?
love for now Val

I bought a load of padded ones to recover from a car boot sale.

What a wonderful hanger, I think I'll have to add this to my ever growing creative 'to do' list, gorgeous colours you've used.

I've bought many of these from John Lewis too, never seen them anywhere else though!?

Just discovered your blog, hello, I'll be popping back to be inspired again.
