Tutorial - Hanger Covers


I made these hanger covers for the International Fall Quilt Market to hang my garments. I thought why now show the world what I did to make these cute covers. These covers offer a clean, uniform look for your closet. It’s perfect for those special garments to stand out in your closet.

1 Cheap Plastic Hanger
1 Fat Quarter of Fabric
Scrap Quilt Batting, approximately a fat quarter
Sewing Machine
General Sewing Supplies

Features FRONT YARD fabric by Sandra Clemons for Michael Miller Fabrics.

Make Covers:
Choose to spray paint your hanger which ever color you so desired.

Place the hanger on top of your fabric. Trace the shape of your hanger to the fabric 3/4” larger than your hanger. Cut the fabric on your traced line. Make 2.

Place one piece of fabric to your batting. Choose to machine quilt the fabric to the batting. In my example, I made vertical straight-line stitches. Make another one.

Trim the batting to the fabric’s raw edge for both units.

For one unit, fold the top over itself with wrong sides together about 1/4”. Top stitch in place to finish the top hem. Repeat for the other unit.

For the bottom opening of the hanger, fold over the unit over itself with wrong sides together to hem the bottom of the hanger. Repeat for the other unit.

This would be the ideal timing to add any labels, accessories, and/or trims to your hanger cover.

Align the units’ right sides together. Sew with a 1/4” seam allowance along the curve of the hanger, avoiding the top and bottom hem.

Turn the hanger cover inside out. Insert the hanger and you’re done.
