Crochet Coat Hanger.

Hello there.
I'm so excited today with my 'Ta-daa' moment!
I want to show you my crochet clothes hanger.
Inspired by the project in a Japanese craft book on Lucy's blog.
I looked at the pretty picture and screwed up my eyes and wrinkled my nose. Yes I think I could make something like that, maybe not identical but similar.
So I gave it a go!
And I'm thrilled with it. (big grin)
It was very fiddly, but after a little conflab with my friend Karen, I'm going to try another one but make it a different and hopefully simpler way.
I'll keep you posted.
.
Next time I'll be sharing some Wedding Cake with you.
No.... not reeeeeaaal Wedding Cake, you know me, I made it from vintage lace! (What else would I use!)
.
Till next time.

Love Fi x

Ooooohhhh that's rather lovely....I love that Japanese book, I have a few of them on a wish list! xxx

Pamela said...

That's really beautiful! I'm thinking that if you made one in white or creme, with pale pink flowers, it would be a lovely gift for someone who has a flower girl, christening, first communion, or even a wedding dress to hang.

Jak said...

Jennifer said...

Oh, it's gorgeous! I saw the pic on Lucy's blog and fell in love, with a hanger, I know. What a brilliant job you did, it really is sweet.

all kinds of everything said...

That’s so beautiful,
If I were you I 'Ta-daa' all day!

val said...

Wow! You are soooooooo clever, I have looked at Lucy's posting but I wouldn't know how to make a start - well I could have a go if some kind person put up a tutorial! :0)
But where do you buy those kind of hangers anymore? I can't find any hereabouts.
Thanks for sharing and I'm looking forward to my piece of wedding cake! :0)

Twiglet said...

That makes a boring, mundane item look terrific! Can't wait for the wedding cake.

Calico Kate said...

Now, a friend of mine & I have a saying that 'life is too short to cover a clothes hanger', however we hadn't seen yours..... beautiful, only snag is that I wouldn't want to hang anything on it! Am v impressed with it and would hang it on the outside of my wardrobe as what Oprah refers to as 'clost, bling'!!

I knew you could do it, it looks luverly, well done xx

Helsie said...

I really like your coat hanger and they are really useful too. Coming into colder weather as we are here you really appreciate a padded coathanger so you don't get those shoulder marks in your knitted(type) stuff. Added to that it is very pretty.
Cheers
Helen

Jacquie said...

Thecraftytrundler said...

Autumn Mist said...

That's so lovely. Crochet is definitely next on my list, but it'll be a while before I can do anything like that (I assume? How hard is crochet?)

GardenofDaisies said...

That's so pretty!! Especially with the little lacey bit that hangs down at the bottom.

beadywitch said...

Youve opened my eye's to the beauty of a coathager cover.
Once upon a time i had scoffed as such things, but when they look as good as your, well I can't help but be INSPIRED
Yet again...

Drool!!!!

Jodie said...

This is too cute...how can you stand to cover it up!?
I envy all yarn artists...it's something I never seem to be able to master.

Sal said...

It's lovely...and certainly much too nice to hang clothes on!! I love it and I reckon you could do a roaring traded with them! ;-)

Sandy said...

I think that is the prettiest crocheted clothes hanger I have ever seen! I love the flowers hanging down. Is it possible for you to share the pattern?

Jude said...

A very BIG please from me, could you share the coat hanger cover....I love it!!!!

Wipso said...

The Flower Garden said...

Very clever lady - it is far too beautiful to put in a wardrobe.

lynnie said...

THAT book is one of my faves ..maybe when my ripplethon is over??i love your hanger ..might have to buy a nice ck teadress to hang on it...teehee hugs lynnie

melanie said...

Very nice and so pretty. xxx

topchelseagirl said...

Ooh is that one of those old kitchen cabinets? I've always wanted one of those, but never had the room. You'll have to hang that on view, too pretty to hide away.

Julia said...

Oh now this is very good! Very good indeed!! I got quite excited upon seeing it, and I think you've done a marvellous job, the flowers make it such a pretty thing!

Well done!! (heartily inspired, off to dig out some wool)

Love Julia x x x

VINTAGE HEART said...

SO lovely, you clever girl, are you going to go in to production? Or could you teach me how to make one at our craft sessions?!!!! best wishes,Linda

Lynne said...

Yes I was quite taken with those same crocheted clothes hangars. I have my own take on them in my head, not sure whether I'll ever get around to making any. Yours are lovely, so pretty.

The Fairy Glade said...

any chance that you could do a pattern for this? dev x

About me said...

I love the colours you've chosen. The ones in the Japanese pattern book aren't a patch on yours, well done!
Thanks so much for the lovely comment about my swimming pool cake, it's much appreciated!

FANTASTIC coat hangers. I love them! They're far too pretty to hide underneath clothes.

crochethealingandraymond said...

yay, thats lovely! I saw the pic on attic 24 too and thought ooooohhh.. I must make them! My beloved just bought me three wooden coathangers to make some so I'm going to try one out tonight! Lovely!
