Make your own doll hangers - Part 2

Guess what I bought today? Socks!  :p  Five pairs, to be exact, just so I could get five more of these:

I'm kidding; I actually needed new socks! But I also wanted to expand on my previous post about full-body hangers. So today I'm making my own!

First I traced around one of Tonner's clear plastic hangers:

And then placed two of my homemade hangers over the "shoulders" and "hips" and traced around those:

I've found that 4" at the shoulders and 3" at the hips will keep most garments from slipping off.

I then folded the paper in half and cut out my pattern so it would be even on both sides:

Then I traced around the pattern on my clear plastic and cut out two pieces. I taped them together at the top, to hold the hook in place:

And finally, here it is hanging up! You can see how well it holds even a one-shoulder top and skirt:

As opposed to Tonner's full-body hanger:


Here is my pattern, so you can make your own:

Hope this was useful!

    I have been searching for this type of hangers for my blouse and tutu sets. I saw something similar at a flea market but they were made of metal. The lady who had them was also selling tutus with a blouse and would not share the info of where she got them from. Thanks.
