became this gorgeous red and black laundry room. With new paint, a new window, and some plaster repair..... okay, and a new washer and dryer. (to replace the dead 30 year old set which weighed a ton according to the delivery guys who took them away).
The sad laundry room had these padded hangers (Boring!)
which would not and could not stay in the new laundry room.
I give you today's project ~ altered clothes hangers !!
The dancing skeleton on the tag is from the $1.50 Michael's bin. The image was stamped with black Staz-On onto an oval cut piece of frosted shrinky dink plastic. Holes were punched at the top of the oval, shrunk in the oven, and then sewn on with thread.
During a trip to Florida to visit my snow bird parents I found the perfect fabric for this project. ("snow birds" as used here means those folks in Canada who migrate to the USA to avoid the cold winter season).
The blue fabric on the old hangers was removed carefully so the pieces could be used as the template for the new fabric.
Interfacing was sewn to the dancing skeleton fabric in a grid pattern. The Skellie fabric was cut using the templates and sewn together by machine. Next, the fabric sleeves were shoved over the foam and the two sides sewn together. Some grosgrain ribbon and a tag finished off this project. (And my Dad thought I was crazy when I told him what I was going to do.)
