One of my dear stitching friends Tricia has her birthday, today the 15th March.
I made this little hanger for her. It was my first time backing a hanger with material and I just used a piece of wadding to pad it out a bit rather than stuffing to make it more pillow like.
I like the finish on it but have to get the hang of using the machine for sewing things up, lol, I’ve only ever handstitched.

Before being made up
The front of the hanger
The fabric backing

For this I used
Red Hot Mama’s Booklet No 1 by Jeanette Crews Designs
DMC Threads
Krenkik #4 Fine Braid Gold
Fabric For Backing
Blue Ribbon for Hanger
Wadding for padding it out.

Happy Birthday Tricia

Happy stitching,
