    Non-slip hangers

    Who remembers doing these? My elderly aunt has been hinting for some of these, so I finally dedicated some time to do them for her. She's so appreciative. Doing them on the wire hangers was much easier than the thick plastic ones.

    great idea!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I still have some that my cousin's grandma did with knit fabric. They were done with a 4 way strand weave I think.

    I have a few in my closet that I made. Mine went up and around the hanger handle also. I remember it was made with yarn and on the old wire hangers.

    In the seventies I made a set using a thin foam and wrapping it round.

    i used a crochet hook and found it difficult to hold the hanger at the right angle and get the hook around the hanger. my aunt said that she used to do them with her fingers.

    I have a few too. No idea where I got them but they are definitely 70's or 80's colours.

    But I especially like the padded wooden hangers that my mother made me many years ago. It is hard to find wooden hangers anymore, so when my DD moved into their (new to them) house and discovered a basement closet full of old hangers--dozens of wooden ones--I kindly offered to get rid of them for her . Now all my shirts and Tee's hang with nicely rounded shoulders.

    Got me in the mood to make some. I probably won't crochet but great way to use up the scrap stash and scrap batting.

    I personally have never made those, but my babysitter(decades ago) made a number of them for me, and I still have them, 40 years later, they're still in great shape.

    My great auntie used to make these by the dozen. She loved keeping her hands busy at night while watching tv. We have several of them, and they're great for sweaters and blouses that you don't want hanger marks in the shoulders.

    I still have some too. I think we started with 2 balls of yarn, each 6' long and just wove through the loop, like crocheting, but with our hands. We made them with Gram during her illness - and now I'm the Gram.

    Thanks for the reminder. I think I have a couple in the back of my closet. Will have to make more for my slippery items.

    You can purchase covered hangers that are not very expensive. More time to quilt!
