UPDATE Feb 7-I have finally added instructions how to make this in Sewing. --------Hi Cuties, I made this hanger cover safe earlier today, when I felt better. The design is from Stitch Delight called 1245 Whispy Floral Font. This of course, is the T, for Trudy my friend. She loves blue, but I hope she likes pink, too. Bet you thought I made myself something. Hope you like it. Have a good night/day-Toogie

Thank you SEW much Toogie for the directions to the pocket. I think I will have to make some of these -for me- of course LOL but as gifts as well. Thank you again

So glad to know the true name of this beautiful font. These are beautiful. I've done hanger covers in the past but nothing like this with a zipper. I don't go anywhere anymore to have the need for this but going to 'copy' your instructions anyways. Great for picking your jewelry out for an outfit in advance and having it stored together. Love it!

Thanks and your idea of matching jewelry to outfit in it is great. I thought of a special bra to go in the zipper part, to wear with a special dress. I guess possibilities are endless.

What a wonderful gift, dear Toogie! And, of course, nobody would dare to think you would do something for yourself :-) (just kidding). Yes,
definitely you make such beautiful things - you even should consider making one present for yourself too. You really deserve it. XXX Maria

Love this, guess I need do dress up some of my hangers. Got the pattern, but not sure how you put the secret pocket in. Any help on that? Thank you and no hurry till you feel better. Thanks

For the pocket-
*1-Sew pocket on one zipper edge, sew back on other zipper edge.
2-Edge finish fabric and zipper edge together (so you don't get ravels caught when zipping-unzipping).
3-Edge finish other long edge of pocket and press under about 1/2 inch.
4-Press up, wrong side of pocket to wrong side of back . Stitch across the long side of pocket securing it to back. Trim any excess pocket at side curves of back.
Welcome to Cute-need anything else just ask.-Toogie...sorry to seem short,I have a funeral to attend.

Beautiful work, Toogie, as always - wish I were half as creative and productive with my sewing.

By the way, Sorry to trouble you Toogie, but I am having difficulty trying to navigate to that site you mentioned for projects where you got your inspiration from - every time I key in the name of the site as www.aspoonfulofsugar.com into my browser, it brings up a site for what appears to be a political publication with that name - nothing to do with sewing - are you sure that is the exact name of the site?

Again, I apologize the correct site is aspoonfulofsugardesigns.com
I'm glad you asked as I thought I put wrong info but couldn't get on PC at the time to correct it, then later forgot. I hope you find it now - I have put a sort of tutorial in Community/Sewing of them.

Beautiful job. What fabric did you use for the pocket? In the pic that shows where the pocket is stitched on the back, is that another zipper or just a line of stitching holding the pocket in? Hugs. Nan W

The pocket is just a cotton fabric and it's just a line of stitching. I did stitch a back & forth stitch to reinforce it, in case something heavy is put inside.

toogie by toogie 07 Feb 2018

Nan I sent you a pm if you want a pattern.

I used the basic idea from aspoonfulofsugar.com for coat hanger cover, but I added the pocket. Thanks-Toogie

Glad to hear that you are feeling better! This is a great hanger cover. I like the idea of having a liner like this. Is the plastic liner actually stitched to the fabric?

toogie by toogie edited 06 Feb 2018

The pocket is cotton not a plastic liner. It is only on the back, stitched at top of pocket to back cover and has a zipper at bottom. I added a photo for you -look above

I think it looks like an heirloom design, as that's what it reminds me of too. I think the 4x4 would look good on a little girls dress. Thanks
