Padded hanger covers. I was so privileged to have attended a working session with Mariaan Basson form Artistic Designs over the past weekend. I have ended up buying a few design sets including the ITH padded hangers for adults. Have adjusted the patterns slightly in that I have attached a ribbon with press studs to the back to secure my camisoles and prevent them from slipping off. in the background you will see the tissue box cover we have made. Learnt a lot. Next time I will use a color that blends in. The white from the voile is visible through the colored satin stitch and does not look so good. Thank you for looking.

Love the 'clip' idea for slippery camisoles.
I make my hanger covers from lace insert (they are knitted) and the polyester lace sort of grabs the slippery clothes.
Beautiful work. Hadn't heard of doing hanger covers on the embroidery machine befo

Thank you. I also thought of putting some off the non slip at the back of the hangers to keep the blouses with sleeves in place.

How pretty!

So beautiful and feminine! Can you tell me where you purchased the hanger, and is it wood or plastic? I used be able to get wooden hangers this shape years ago, but can no longer find them locally. Great idea with the twill tape, too.

I am not sure where you are from. I live in Johannesburg South Africa and got them from a haberdashery in Krugersdorp - New Kayo. They also sell the piping for the steel part. Sorry yes they are wooden hangers.

Have wanted to make these but can't find the hangers? Is their a place they can be ordered from?

eleen by eleen 24 Nov 2016

Yes you can get them from OPW (Artistic designs). She does not have a separate site but sells through OPW and Secrets. There are more than one set for the larger hangers and then a set for children hangers.

Where do I get to the website at OPW? All that comes up are the designs to order?

Elegant and useful! We all should have closet filled with beautiful hangers! I like the tissue box as is. Gives it a nice soft feel. Work well done!
