Bear Hugs Hangers in Handmade Magazine this month
This month's Handmade Magazine features my pattern Three Bears Hanger Hugs on the front cover. This is a project I designed especially for children's cupboards. I used to love having special children only hangers for my clothes when I was a child. They made me feel special, like my clothes were really wonderful, and given my age, the hangers made me look after my clothes better.
Now I'm all grown up and a mum, I thought it would be nice to make some special hangers for my daughter as well. This was the inspiration for Bear Hanger Hugs.
The design of these hangers is simple - a bears face and paws that seem to reach out to you. Because I made bears, there had to be three (naturally - I remember my childrens' stories).
The pattern is fun to make up. It's nice to work with felt and blanket stitch. I hope you enjoy this pattern too.
