In the last couple of months there seems to be a real babyboom around me. Which is great as I’m crocheting LOTs of cute baby items,which all want to be placed in a wardrobe or at least want some nice pictures taken off. There was my problem, I only have adult cloth hangers, which are way to big for the little ones. I could have gone out and just got one in mini-size but they’re super expensive (unless I’m too stupid to find them cheaply ;)) so upcycle it was. You might have seen this post before as it was my June contribution to Craftaholics Anonymous.
