This is one of my favorite patterns. I have made so many of these over the years for other and I still carry the one I made nearly 7 years ago for myself. I hope you enjoy this pattern.
A reverse applique and monogram was PERFECT for this pattern.
DIY Non-slip Covered Hanger Tutorial
It's the perfect gift for the upcoming bride or to hold your items that have delicate straps.
Dress up all your ugly wire hangers that are always getting tangled in the laundry room closet so they'll look pretty and presentable for guests or to give with gifts.
1. Using craft paper, trace your hanger, add 1/2 inch to the sides and 1 inch to the bottom
2. Use the template to cut 2 pieces of fabric.
3. With right sides together, pin and sew the sides, slightly less than 1/2 "or 1/4" in at the seam.
4. Stop 1/2" short of the center at the top to leave space for the hook to slip through.
5. Hem at the bottom all the way around.
6. To make the hanger cover non-slip, add to small buttons to the end of each hanger directly on the seam line. (shown is 1" away from the curve of the hanger at the end.)
I made these as a bridal shower gift years ago.
oh. Precious naptime.
Our mornings are so busy cleaning, laundry, shuffling kids off to school, packing lunches and backpacks, appointments, and so much more.
During my sewing time and the babies naptime my mind does a great deal of thinking. I get locked in on one situation and turn it over and over in my head. Today all I could think about was a falling out I had with a friend a year ago. I have forgiven and she says she has too but still things will never be the same. So my thoughts churn and the feelings begin to burn and then I think.
LORD RESCUE ME! Capture these thoughts and bind them up. I can not waste another second on them. There is just too much good to focus on.
It's happened before they I have heard an audible voice say "Let Me handle this". It's such a good feeling to know my Lord tells me what I need to hear. I always think back to that moment at my sewing machine nearly 8 years ago. It caught me off guard. I didn't even know it was still possible to hear our Lord so clearly.
So, I think about that moment and how it is something I need to hear from time to time but because He did it once with great impact on me, I should never forget.
In my time with churning thoughts I churned out this little beauty of a dress. The pattern is featured in my previous post.
If if you ever give it a try please let me know.
This easy pattern is a McCalls. I have a few free ones I've downloaded but this one was worth the 99¢ on sale. It makes it easy to make the same dress style until she is much bigger.
This pattern is perfect for a beginner. Once you master adding elastic, you've got it.
Cooler weather means little toes need covering. For a baby girl that is about to start walking I wanted them to be flexible and versital. She can flex her toes and feet. The leather is upcycled and is super soft. The buttons are hand sewn from my grandmothers stash of glass buttons. Velcro dots actually secure the leather straps that are lined with a soft cotton. The soles are cork that are covered with cotton fabric. Cork is thin and flexible while being sturdy. I had to sew the toe end several times to cut down on the length of the shoe since her foot is so tiny. She typically only wears 0-3 month shoes now.
The he pattern I used is in my Free Patterns link above. The only difference is the piece that wraps around the back of the heel a bit.
I had a large piece of fabric I had intentions of using for my own boys but never did. So, when I was going through my fabrics and found it I wanted nothing more than my friends sweet babies to have some pieces made with it. And with all the showers lining up, I'm sure I'm not done yet.
It's hard adding details to boy things without going over the top. So I held back a little.
Just a tad.
I had so much fun making these but I'm going to love even more seeing those boys wearing them.
Here are the links to the patterns I used. I hope you enjoy them. They are free for you!
