It's always a struggle to find something appropriate to give my 80 something aunt. She doesn't want stuff - she's trying to get rid of stuff and I can relate to this. Keeping this in mind I came up with these covered hangers and lavender sachets - I'm sure she'll use the hangers and the sachets will keep her drawers/closets fresh. Next time we visit we won't go empty handed.
These are easily crocheted and I used cotton yarn - make a chain as long as necessary to reach around the hanger then single crochet (sc) as many rows as needed for the strip to wrap around the hanger then sew or crochet it closed. I have crocheted around the question mark part of the hanger but it tends to pick up some grunge so it wasn't a good idea. I embellish them by making a crocheted chain that I tie in a bow and these ones have a crocheted mini butterfly on them - more about the butterflies in another post.
