Print the pattern and cut it out. Stack two pieces of same color felt and use the pattern to cut out two shirts.
To make the coat hanger, cut a 12-inch piece of wire. Place your shirt pattern on the work surface and bend the wire to create the first corner of the hanger. Lay it onto the pattern to help you gauge the size. Leave enough space around the collar for stitching at the end.
Bend the other side, the wires should intersect, creating a triangle.
Twist the wire tow or three times at the intersection.
Snip off one end of the wire.
Bend the other end of the wire into the hanger top.
Snip off the excess wire.
Use glue to attach the hanger to one of the felt shirts. Add more glue over the top of the hanger and press the second shirt on top, lining up all the edges.
Use glue and embellishments to decorate your sweater.
Stitch around the entire sweater to finish it off. You can use a blanket stitch or a hemming stitch, whichever you prefer. When finished, add a little glue to the end stitch(es) to secure them.
Expert Tips & FAQs
* I use Beacon 3 in 1 Advanced Craft Glue. Hot glue does not work well on felt, it peels off. ** You can make mini wreaths yourself by gluing pom poms together in a circle and attaching a ribbon bow. Use beads as the ornaments. Or you can buy them in the holiday section of your local craft store. The mini lights that I used I found in the scrapbook embellishments.
