No Wire Hangers!

I wasn't meaning to sound like Joan Crawford but I'm so glad that my husband is no longer working in the corporate world as I hate those wire coat hangers that always come back from the dry cleaners, don't you?

However, as one who cringes at the thought of waste, the ugly wire coat hanger was my inspiration for our new linen coat hanger covers. Do you like?

These covers are very easy to make so I made up 60 craft packs today to take with me to Melbourne for the Sew It Together meetup on Saturday. The packs include the pattern, sewing instructions and different fabrics made up of mainly discontinued hand-printed pieces (not those shown). This was a great opportunity for me to declutter so it's good for everybody.

I am flying out tomorrow morning at 6.00 am so I will have to find some winter woolies to take with me as I have been warned that the weather is cold! We have been quite spoilt in sunny Brisbane with all the warm weather lately.

I apologise that I am unable to bring you Friday Follower again tomorrow but once my internet is connected (we have now applied for a wireless service), things will be back to normal.

Have a Great Weekend and I look forward to seeing some of you in Melbourne!

Thank you so much for the gift ... and it was so nice sitting with you and chatting. Don't forget to post the hat when it's done ... especially if your daughter is wearing it.
