Pretty Pockets and a Crocheted Hanger

I got this idea from Jessica at Kids Napping, I'm Scrapping! I made this for a wedding gift, it didn't turn out quite as nice as I wanted, but, oh well.

I crocheted a cover for the hanger and a flower that I added to the middle.

This is the Pretty Pockets. It is made out of linen with a piece of peach lace over it and then I attached the pockets and ribbon. I made some lace yo-yo's and then put some stuff in the pockets. I thought she could hang it on the back of the bathroom door or her bedroom door and put some of her things in it.

What a lovely thoughtful gift. I don't see anything wrong with it. Its amazing. I especially like your idea of over laying with lace. What a sweet touch. Your friend will be a very lucky to have your wonderful handmade gift!!

Your thoughtful gift is beautiful!! I ♥LOVE the crocheted flower, too:)
Did you use a pattern for crocheting over the hanger? Those would also make nice "padded" hangers for clothes!
Great job, girl! Hope you had a good time at the wedding :)

Thank you and Cathy I altered a pattern I found on line. I can try to write it out if you'd like.

This is absolutely beautiful. I don't see anything wrong with it either. I would love such a gift. Do you think you could send me the pattern too? I'm not as skillful as a seamstress as you obviously are, but I'd love to try it.
