Step 1: Trace and cut pattern Place the hanger flat on the tissue paper and trace it, leaving a gap for the hook and adding a quarter-inch to the top two sides and two inches to the bottom to allow for a seam. Cut out the pattern. Tip Keep the pattern so it can be used to make more covers later. Step 2: Cut the fabric Fold the fabric in half and pin the pattern to it with clothespins. Cut the fabric and create two identical pieces. Step 3: Sew the top Place the two pieces against each other with the outsides facing each other, so the cover is inside out. Sew the top two sides together, using the extra quarter-inch as the seam. Don't sew the bottom together, otherwise you won't be able to slip the cover over the hanger. Step 4: Sew the sides Turn the cover right-side out. Fold the bottom half-inch of each side inward and sew the sides together. Leave the top of the hanger cover unsewn, creating an opening for the hanger hook. Step 5: Make an opening At the top, where you left the gap, cut a half-inch long, one-inch wide tab on both pieces of fabric. Tuck the two tabs inside the cover to allow the hook of the hanger to poke through without catching on the fabric. Step 6: Cover Slide the cover over the hanger. Sew the bottom seams together if you wish. Then, tie a ribbon on the hook to add a pretty touch. Now your clothes will store better, without damage. Did You Know?
