I have been knitting, sewing and creating knitting patterns for 18" AG type dolls for a few years now. You can see some of it here on Craftsy (my favorite site ever!!!) and on Face Book at knit N play, here is a link; http://www.facebook.com/?ref=tn_tnmn#!/media/set/?set=a.137856486249876.13956.137850106250514&type=3
Early on I ran into a problem of storing samples of clothes I made in a neat way as doll clothes hangers I found were rather pricy and I needed many.
I looked for ways to get small hangers and to get them either very cheap or free. I love re-using things that would normally end up in a land field. In the project offered here (to all for FREE) I have found solution to my hanger problem and saved some of our land field space as well.
Additionally these hangers are child safe.
So all you moms on the budget - pay attention.
It takes ordinary dry cleaning pant type hanger, the one made of dark color wire with cardboard tube at the base. White all wire hangers will not work. These "pant" hangers have a nice smooth top hook part that will not cause any scratches to a child if used in play.
