Coat-hangers and Ghouls

Whilst I love the fabric covered coat-hangers I made earlier I wondered if I could give them a less girly feel for my step grand-daughter who is in the Goth phase of teenagehood now. So using the Waking Dead fabric I covered some coat-hangers and finished them off with a little black flower.

I liked it so much I made three in the end.

The last one has no embellishment at I am going to hang the little black bag I made around it, in which will be some jewelry, her main present.

Now I am left with two pieces of the fabric, one measures 80cmx8cm and the other is 50cmx30cm. Any ideas anyone?

  1. Very cool hangers! How can anyone not like the Walking Dead anything? For the leftover fabric…hair scrunchies, coffee mug rug, coffee mug cozy?

    • I wondered about a scrunchie but wasn’t certain people still wore them. Now a mug cosy could be good as Ms J does love her hot chocolate. Thanks for the ideas.

  2. a project bag? Do you have another fabric you could use for a lining? I love padded hangers!

    • Yes I have some plain black fabric, that could be a good idea. Glad you like padded coat hangers too. I get a thrill every time you use one!

  3. Love it! You could sew a peg bag out of the left over fabric.

  4. A pencil case? Or zippy pouch for other use.

  5. I think a little zipped make up bag would be perfect.

  6. How about covering a notebook? Claire (of Claire93 fame) made some brilliant ones.

  7. Love these, very cool 🙂

  8. Perfect! I’m sure your goth teenager will love them.

  9. She will love those hangers what Goth wouldn’t ? Maybe a fabric corsage with the left over fabric to pin on clothes or bags other than that no idea !

  10. Love the hangers. Adding the jewel bag is a sweet touch. You’ve had a lot of good ideas here. I’d think of a cell phone bag but the cell is rarely out of their hands. 🙂 I think most teens go through that stage. Mine did too.

    • I am drawn to the idea of a drawstring bag, or phone bag, maybe a scrunchie or corsage with the smaller piece. I am so glad I asked for help, so many super ideas, only having had boys myself I am rather out of my depth!

  11. I was thinking a fabric flower too. Or a small Christmas stocking.

  12. I love the way the goth hangers turned out. And the idea of a little jewelry bag hanging on one of them is a very neat idea. Great ideas already presented to you for the leftover fabric. I seem to be fresh out of ideas right now. 🙂 Love and Hugs, Tamara
