Salvaged Treasures. She made these out of vintage embroidered pillowcases and, as I had just passed up a number of said items at the thrift store because they were "one-offs", I quickly returned to the store and bought all they had left.
I decided to go a few steps farther than did the original poster (OP) by first padding...
Here are the completed hangers:
This pillowcase was perfect in size and required little handwork. As I like it! (The blue is much more colorful than my pic shows.)
Because I believe items such as these should be treasured, I want my construction to equal the work in the original pillowcases so, rather than use adhesive velcro as did the OP, I'll use hand-stitched snaps.
From now on, whenever I hit the thrifts, I'll be on the lookout for decorative pillowcases. What about you? Think you might try this?
