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
You're welcome and please show us your work.
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
How kind Maria,and thank you, but no time for me right now. I did give my friend this yesterday and got a huge hug in response. That's all I needed. Have a great day-Toogie
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.
Very nice and so beautiful .
I hope I'll be able to give it to her soon, thanks.
So clever. I must remember this. I have designs for these somewhere.
I just got this font with frame through my newsletter from stitchdelight. I love them. Thanks for looking.
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.
Nan I sent you a pm if you want a pattern.
Such an incredibly clever idea. Did you have a pattern
I used the basic idea from aspoonfulofsugar.com for coat hanger cover, but I added the pocket. Thanks-Toogie
Oh my goodness, that is a wonderful site for quick and easy projects! New to me...thanks for sharing. Avis
You're welcome Avis.
Photo showing where the pocket is stitched, on the back, inside.
Wonderful. Love the whole thing. Great job.
Thank you worthy
Toogie that is just beautiful!!
Thank you Pam
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?
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
Beautiful work done...Gorgeous!!!
I've collected that font, too. I make these shoulder protectors and have never thought of adding the "safe"...great idea and thanks for sharing this with us. Blessings, Avis
I have made others in Community/Sewing for trip gifts. Thanks
She will love it. I collected this alpha too and will use it on towels.
I am sure they will look gorgeous. This is a great design.
Very nicely done. The embroidery came out beautiful.
Thank you a great design.
Very nice, looks old fashion, which is a good thing.
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
Your friend will love it.
I think so too, thanks
Trudy will treasure this as her 'treasure' hide-all! Love Chris
I joked and told her she may never find this herself, so I know a burglar wouldn't.. I have never seen anyone with so many clothes!
It's beautiful Toogie, your friend will love it
The little wreath and T are breathtaking.
I saved the font from my Stitch Delight newsletter . Each letter came with this wreath and in 2 sizes! She has beautiful designs.
I am sure your friend Trudy will love this Toogie, it is very pretty and you have done a wonderful job.
Thank you so much Sandra-I haven't seen her to give because I feel to bad for visitors . I have doctor appointment tomorrow, again.
She will love it! I do. You have done a great job, Toogie.
Thank you Lidia, it is a great design.
