Last week I had a birthday and one of my gifts was these coat hangers. I was thrilled! Really! I needed some more padded coat hangers for my wardrobe and these are handmade by my Mum. The are knitted using yarn and a particular type of lace to create the ruffles. She even cover the metal hangers with tubing so they match.
If you want to try these you can find a free pattern over at World of Lace. There are also lots of other types of free covered coat hanger patterns around so I’ve collected some of the best. Click on the pictures or the descriptions to find the patterns on the original web sites.
