Cotton print fabric for garment bag, velcro for fasteners, plastic garment hangar with metal swivel hook, 3" wide strips of lining fabric folded in half long wise, ribbon, lace, purchased ribbon roses.
What was your inspiration?
I msde this garment bag and hangar to coordinate and be a part of the "Christmas Ensemble' project shown as another posting. I wanted the ensemble to have its very own garment bag so it would be recongnizable in the closet, and wanted a lovely padded satin hangar for the lovely outfit to hang on in the closet.
What are you most proud of?
THe way it all turned out (for not having a pattern or a clue how to make one).
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I used a plastic hangar like you get at the clothing stores. Since it was a full size adult hangar, I had my husband 'cut' off approx. 2" on either end before I wrapped the plastic with batting, then wound it with the folded lining strips. I made little 'mittens' for each end which I sewed to the lining wrapped hangar. I glued the lace embelishment on, and also the roses and bows.
