How to Make Fabric Wire Hanger Covers

Does your bedroom or guestroom closet need a little punch?  Mine did so I decided to make these really cute fabric covered wire hangers.  I have loads of these dry cleaner wire hangers that are covered in paper but I wanted some to match the decor in my guest room so I decided to cover my own.  This project literally takes 10 minutes to make and you can make between 3-4 hanger covers from a single remnant.  You know how much I love using remnants and this project was no different.  My guest room is green so I decided to use this green plaid fabric to make three matching fabric wire hanger covers.  They were so simple that I had to share them with you.  Believe me, this is the perfect beginner sewing project.

Of course I recommend using your remnants if you have them but if not head over to Hobby Lobby or Fabric.com to get the perfect fabric for your project.

I used a quilting weight cotton fabric for my wire hanger covers as that seemed to work best so I recommend that as well.  This post contains affiliate links that if you click on them I may receive a commission at no extra cost to you.
