"Semi" Vintage Crochet Hangers

I've become hooked on crocheting clothes hangers. I use both vintage and new crochet thread but I use old wooden clothes hangers and then embellish with bits and bobs.....vintage mop buttons and rhinestone jewelry pieces.
The hangers were photographed on my friend Stephanie's beautiful hand embroidered dish towel. (Link to her Etsy shop) I tried all sorts of backgrounds and this worked the best.

A close up of the bits and bobs...

I also crochet the little flowers using fine size 30 thread. My plan is to make a lot more and fill my closet with these hangers.

Thanks for stopping by!

They came out so pretty. Not a bad past time and I love the little extras on each one!
I have used old thread and only found it to be less stable. The bunch I got broke and was just not in good shape at all.
