- Everyone uses hangers, making them perfect for gift giving. You can embroider a monogram, add a bit of trim or some decorative stitches, and in no time at all you have a quick and easy personalized gift item.
- Wire hangers are boring and not very functional. Why not cover them up and turn them into something pretty and practical? This is a great way to re-cycle hangers and keep your garments from getting the "dreaded hanger bump" that comes from unpadded hangers.
- I believe custom-made clothing deserves special status. Why not make a hanger cover from remnants or coordinating fabric to match a garment sewn from scratch? You're sure to smile every time you hang it up.
- A coordinating hanger cover is the crowning touch to a garment crafted for a special occasion such as a wedding. Imagine making one for the bride, groom, and all the wedding attendants. This simple gift helps to commemorate the occasion and create a lasting memory.
- Hanger covers for children's clothing can be made with fun fabrics and designs that appeal to little ones. They'll keep small clothes from slipping and can be made to match colors in their wardrobe. Come to think of it, they could even serve as a fun lesson to teach children to hang up their clothes!
