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.
