My turn for Mothers Day Mania!!

If you pop on over to the Among The Gumtrees blog you’ll find my pattern for these cute “Coathanger Frocks” … April 2010 131 and I thought you might like to see some that I made with my friends Lynn and Valerie yesterday. These are to be sold at a craft stall that raises a few extra $$$ for the retirement centre that Valerie volunteers at……. April 2010 218 Here’s a couple of ‘grown up’ ones … looking gawjus with just some ric rac and a lovely big vintage button…..April 2010 220 and some for the kids with no embellishments but some really fun fabrics ……April 2010 222 These aren’t quite finished, the binding is only pinned down and they also need a pretty ribbon at the base of their hook, but you get the picture :o). We also used some plastic tubing on the hooks that we found in amongst Valerie’s stash.

I hope you’re enjoying all the fun things happening on the Gumtrees blog this week, tomorrow Dawn will bring you something special so be sure to pop in again then!!

Thanks so much for the sweet pattern for the coat hangers. I especially like the birdie which I can use on baby dresses with a hanger to match!

Thanks for the lovely hanger pattern Joy, especially love the brights and kiddies versions.
Grandies are visiting for the weekend, will give them a try and the Raspberry cake will be perfect for the rest of the family. Yummo. Thanks a lot.

They are absolutely gorgeous Joy - and I adore the stitcheries! I think the Gum Tree Gang is the most talented EVER!

Love those pink and green coathangers! And your lovely doilies. It's been awhile since I broke out the crochet thread. I did make several sweaters for Lily, my pet chihuahua this last fall (see my blog for photo).
